Lies, Damned Lies and UIDAI Lies!

Claims have been made that UID / "Aadhaar" has "saved" several Cores of Rupees in LPG susbsidies by identifying and eliminating "Fakes and Ghost" LPG connections.

Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have confirmed in written RTI replies to me that they have NOT found any "Fake / Ghost" LPG connection.

That lie is only known to me and those with whom I shared the RTI reply.

The lie of savings is a claim being shouted at from "Roof Tops" in justification of the "use" of UID / "Aadhaar".

Now the "savings" lie is exposed by none other than the CAG.

The people responsible for putting out these lies assumed that one can fool all the people all the time.

They are mistaken. They can fool some people, even a very large majority, as they have here, all the time, but they can't fool ALL the PEOPLE ALL THE TIME!
