SHILLONG, Aug 3: The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) on Wednesday demanded that the state government should exempted students of the state from submitting their Aadhaar cards for the scholarship and thereby avoiding any unnecessary complication to the students dependent on scholarship to support their educatiol pursuit. A joint memorandum submitted to the Education Minister Dr RC Laloo, by KSU president Daniel Khyriem and general secretary Auguster Jyrwa, read, “With regards to the application of scholarship for the year 2016-17, making it mandatory for the students of the state to submit their Aadhaar along with the other essential documents to meet the requirements of the Directorate of Higher and Technical Education in the state of Meghalaya.” They said the union wish to highlight that the Supreme order on 15 October 2015 with regards to Aadhaar is crystal clear that it cannot be made mandatory until a fil decision is reached. “We can term the above advertisement a violation and can also attract “contempt of court”,” the Union said adding that the issue of LPG connection which has also been linked to Aadhaar has also been exempted in the state of Meghalaya due to the same concerns.
