To spread the message that Adhar Card is for all, Government of India has dropped ‘Aam Aadmi’ from its tagline and changed it to ‘Mera Aadhaar, Meri Pehchan’.
The change in tagline was successful due to the efforts of one of the leader of Bharatiya Janata Party’s Delhi unit and several others, who requested the government to drop the words. Even though the tagline was changed six months before, the Ministry of Communications and IT confirmed it on Tuesday, June 28.
Aadhaar was created before AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) came into being.But, there was a debate to change the tagline since AAP was formed, which started when the previous government was in power.
As per the reports received one of the spokesperson of Delhi filed a petition in front of PM to change the tagline last year, on 19th September 2015. Aadhar Card is issued to every body, whether he/she is a common man or not therefore, its tagline must be changed.
Government had taken decision to change the previous tagline & new tagline will be applicable very soon from the new generated Aadhar Cards.
