India – ID Cards to Entire Population

 width=India’s New Identification Efforts Aimed at the Poor

29 September 2010 | Kurt Achin | New Delhi

India has formally launched an ambitious program to provide identification numbers to its population.  Authorities say they plan to put ID cards in the hands of 100 million of India’s poorest citizens within months, making it easier for them to access basic services.

Indian officials set a festive mood for the new plan, with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi, leader of the dominant Congress Party, personally handing out the first identification cards to villagers in Maharashtra state.  The government has set an ambitious deadline, aiming to provide hundreds of millions of people with a unique 12-digit number within just a few years.

Officials say the numbers and the data profiles behind them will offer a fast track for India’s poorest citizens to benefit from a wide range of services, from food distribution to banking.

The project is a top priority for the government, says Prime Minister Singh, adding that India’s most economically and socially backward citizens will derive the maximum benefit from the new plan.

The poorest of the poor in India frequently have difficulty obtaining the right paperwork to certify their identity, and receive government benefits. The new digitally encoded ID cards contain key biographical data, backed up by fingerprint and retinal scans.

Congress Party leader Sonia Gandhi says the objective is not just progress, but inclusiveness of everyone in the country. Gandhi said officials are aware the challenges of the 21st century cannot be overcome by old ideas and methods. The goal, she says, is to empower the people.

India leveraged its human talents in information technology to advance the identification program.  The government appointed billionaire founder of Infosys Corporation, Nandan Nilekani, to lead the initiative.  He, in turn, recruited Indian tech talent from companies around the world to volunteer their time on the project.   [Emphasis added]

    Further smokescreen justified implementations of what will become the database of the final antichrist’s government, which is now the globalist UN/IMF/OECD Marxist power structure which even today almost has world domination. It fights daily to overthrow traditional bible based morality, freedom of conscience and privacy, all by using smokescreen reverse psychology techniques to justify themselves saying what they are enforcing is for the poor or to protect the people from “terrorists”.

    This has been going on for a very long time. An acquaintance once said:

    “The new world order will be replaced by the new world order.”

    From the movie They Live:

    “There ain’t no countries no more.”

    Their game is known as ‘incremental change’ and it starts by rolling out pilot programs in other nations only to be gradually implemented here (or there, whereever).

    Gradualism is a known Satanic tactic, along with the synthesis portion of the ‘Hygelian dialectic’. You see this stuff everywhere, now.

    They were actually paying people a small fee to get their information because they were afraid. Many of the villagers have never seen a laptop before so they weren’t keen on doing this. After this plan was put in place Sonia Gandhi passed a massive feeding program in India to put the cherry on the top. Ironically she was rushed to the hospital, soon after this piece of legislation passed, with chest pains. She ended up being fine we are told.

    Sad part is that many of the poor probably where clueless about what was going on. They are being told they will get all these perks if they are in the system. This is the biggest ID program I know of here. Having an ID is common place for us Westerners but this is a brand new concept for many Indians. This part of the world has been unplugged for many years, until now.

    Now we have a new government in place. We will see the next phase of the program implemented here. Please pray for India and for open hearts to the Gospel. Thank you.
