Mangalore, 9 Nov  2013 : Supreme Court (SC) already ruled that Aadhaar Card, Unique Identity (UID) is not mandatory; and it binds the ministry, said union petroleum and natural gas minister M Veerappa Moily.


Addressing the media persons at state-run guesthouse located in Kadri Hills, here on Friday November 8 evening, minister Moily said that the union government has profited to the tune of Rs 50 crore by transferring the subsidies directly to the beneficiaries whose savings bank accounts are linked to Aadhaar Card.  The bogus cards ceased to come on mainstream, owing to the effectiveness of Aadhaar Card linkage to beneficiaries bank accounts, said minister Moily.

The marketing of 5 kilograms LPG cylinders are already begun in filling stations with good response, added minister Moily.

‘I have been travelling in trains and public transport since the past 2 months to save energy costs.  It has indeed saved huge money.  If the countrymen do the same, the nation will save Rs 28,000 crore to Rs 30,000crore in energy costs.  It will in turn lead to slash in prices of petroleum products.  The educating the public in this regard is the need of the hour,’ said minister Moily.

No need worry over anti-superstition Bill

Nothing has been decided on introducing anti-superstition Bill; as CM Siddaramaiah has not officially stated in this regard.  The state administration will not introduce the Bill that will hinder the belief of masses.  The people need not worry over the issue, said minister Moily.


National Law School of University submitted a proposal to union government on anti-superstition Act; it has not come up for discussion in the parliament, said minister Moily.

Modi acting like Hitler

Narendra Modi is a liar, acts like Hitler.  He boasts about stalwarts Vallabhabai Patel and Jawaharlal Nehru, but does not know their struggle in unifying the states and treading the nation during upheavals.  He wants to make a life size statue of Vallabhabai Patel, which will not make Modi a great man indeed.   He is crazy for publicity and speaks whatever pleases to satiate his ego, criticized minister Moily.

Veerappa Moily says oil ministry is bound by Aadhar/ UID . It means Govt./ Ministry are not bound by Supreme Judgements. If a minister knowingly talks like this with no fear of judiciary, how people do have respect for Govt. / Judiciary? He travels by train under reservation quota obviously. He does not know how difficult to get reservation to travel months ahead. The people must retort such statements then and there itself so that they talk sensibly. Otherwise pl. do not report or publish. ( to discourage such people )
