#NewDelhi: The Election Law (Amendment) Bill, 2021 (Election Law Amendment Bill) was passed in the Lok Sabha after the Union Cabinet gave its clearance. The bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Monday. The bill was introduced by Union Law Minister Kiran Rijiju.
Opposition parties, including Congress Lok Sabha leader Adhir Chowdhury, Trinamool Congress leader Saugat Roy and RSP’s NK Premchandran, strongly opposed the introduction of the bill. However, despite the objections, the bill was introduced in the hustle and bustle. Opposition groups called for a boycott of the assembly. After the bill is passed in the Lok Sabha on this day, it will be sent to the Rajya Sabha.

What will be the position of the grassroots in this bill? Sukhendu Shekhar Roy, chief whip of the party’s Rajya Sabha, told News Eighteen Bangla, “We (Trinamool) have been opposed to the bill from the beginning. There could be a conspiracy. “
In addition to Aadhaar-voter integration, several other reforms may be introduced in the electoral process. Notable among them is the increase in the time of registration of names in the voter list. From January 1, names can be registered in the voter list 4 times a year.

Incidentally, information about Aadhaar card was collected from voters in 2014, seven years ago. The information was collected by the Election Commission. In this way, the commission collected personal information of about 400 million voters in the country. After that the case was filed in the Supreme Court.
In the wake of the apex court’s ruling, the process of merging voter cards and Aadhaar cards to protect the ‘right to personal privacy’ has not progressed. Discussions are now underway to start a new merger process after the Union Cabinet clearance. It is believed that voter-Aadhaar integration will help in identifying bogus voters.
