Mangaluru, Feb 01, 2018: District Congress Spokesperson and advocate Vinayraj has taken strong exception to the hue and cry raised by MPs Nalin Kumar Kateel and Shobha Karandlaje over the reports of a foreign citizen getting an Aadhar card in the city.
Speaking to reporters at the Congress Bhavan, he also resented the allegations of the MPs that the local MLA and officials had exerted their influence to issue an Aadhar card to a foreign citizen.
Pointing out that Aadhar card is an identity card and not a citizenship card, he alleged that the BJP leaders were trying to win over the masses through malicious propaganda in view of the next election.
"Mangaluru South MLA JR Lobo has done several good works. Unable to digest this, the BJP was resorting to anti-propaganda," he alleged.
Congress leaders Praveen Chandra Alva, Shobha Padil, Nazeer Bajal and others were present.
