Data theft: ‘UIDAI clarificationhas vindicated TDP’s stand’

The assertion of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that Aadhaar data had not been stolen was enough to prove that the data theft theory was a conspiracy hatched by the Telangana government and the YSRCP, the TDP said on Thursday.

Addressing a press conference here, TDP spokesperson Lanka Dinakar said the conspiracy was to defeat the TDP in the elections.

The UIDAI clarified that the IT Grids company did not steal any of its Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR).

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up by the Telangana government charged the IT Grids company with stealing data a few weeks ago.

Under the pretext of raids, the Telangana government had taken away the data pertaining to the TDP as a part of its conspiracy to delete the names of eight lakh Telugu Desam Party members, he charged.

TRS strategy

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) had implemented a similar strategy and got 25 lakh votes deleted ahead of the Assembly elections in that State, Mr. Dinakar alleged.
