New Delhi: Minister of Information Technology had to bear the wrath of Sakshi Dhoni after personal information of her husband and former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was allegedly leaked online. The personal details of cricket icon MS Dhoni have been made public, accidentally, by the agency helping the Unique Identification Authority of India or UIDAI implement Aadhaar.
In a series of tweets, the former Indian captain's wife Sakshi Dhoni took up the issue with Information and Technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who had tweeted the cricketer's photo. CSC e-governance on their official Twitter page put a picture containing an application form of Dhoni.
The reference was to a tweet by the agency providing Aadhar help, which read, "Ace Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his family get their Aadhaar updated at VLE Mariya Farooqui's CSE at Ranchi, Jharkhand".
Sakshi Dhoni, who came across the tweet, immediately tweeted to Ravi Shankar Prasad. Sakshi's tweet reads, "Is there any privacy left ? Information of Aadhaar card including application is made public property. Disappointed."
I&B Minister was confused about the whole situation replied stating, "No it is not a public property. Does this Tweet divulge any personal information?"
Prasad responded, "No it is not a public property. Does this Tweet divulge any personal information?" Sakshi then sent out a screenshot of the photo put up by CSC e-governance.
Prasad immediately thanked her for bringing this to his notice. "Thanks for bringing this to my notice. Sharing personal information is illegal. Serious action will be taken against this," Prasad tweeted back.
I-T ministry sources say the representative who helped with MS Dhoni's Aadhar card is not a government employee but a "village level entrepreneur" part of a huge matrix of centres across the country, involved in updating information for a commission.
