Srinagar, July 29: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti said on Sunday that “apprehensions” about Aadhaar and “data breach” must be addressed “unless we want an Orwellian state”.

“In today’s world , data has emerged as one of the most vital resources and is hailed as the new oil of the digital economy. Therefore, apprehensions about #Aadhaar particularly data breach must be addressed unless we want an Orwellian state,” she tweeted on Sunday.
