Modi scuttles PC’s smart card project

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi (India) doesn’t pull his punches when it comes to confronting the UPA government. In his latest show of aggression, Modi has nixed Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s ambitious pet project of launching Resident Identity Cards (RICs) in the coastal areas of the state. Modi argued that the methodology adopted for vetting citizens’ status was fraught with danger. The Home Ministry’s plan of handing over the second batch of RICs to adults of the age of 18 years and above in more than 650 villages of the coastal belt of Gujarat has come to a halt.
