The whole issue that was emerging around for last two days on who put the Aadhaar helpline number in your contact list, came to a relief late Friday night when Google, the Android operating system provider accepted that “they” have done it. The company in a statement said that an internal review has revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number such as police, ambulance, fire etc were coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android phones. That was later used in India and has remained there since. And before jumping on to a false conclusion about whom to blame and whom to not, ask yourself: Why did Google save the UIDAI number in your contact list in the first place? They didnt wake up one day and said ”Lets add UIDAI phone number to the Indian phones for fun”. It is a matter of concern over the safety of Aadhar database, safety about You and Me, the 1.35 billion people who’s privacy is now in grave danger. And the government is doing nothing about it. Our Correspondent Miss Anusha Bhattacharya gives more insights about the case.

The death toll in the flood-hit Kerala has jumped to 324. And in the last 10 days of floods, the death toll has nearly become three times more in the last 24 hours. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had arrived in Kochi last night to undertake a survey of flood-hit areas. Prime Minister Modi was accompanied by Kerala Chief Minister Vijayan during the aerial survey. After consultation with chief minister, Narendra Modi announced an interim relief aid of Rs 500 crore. The entire procedure has certainly killed a lot of valuable time and has taken a toll on the innumerous lives that could have otherwise been saved had this procedure would be paced up. There is no doubt on the contribution from the Centre but it was really late and the kind of loss of human lives and infrastructure has been suffered by Kerela, providing relief funds on time had to be the main priority for them..Anusha Bhattacharya gives more insights
