The Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021, which seeks to link electoral rolls with the Aadhaar ecosystem to weed out duplication, was passed in the Lok Sabha on Monday amid protests by Opposition. Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said, "Aadhaar is only meant to be a proof of residence, it's not a proof of citizenship. You're potentially giving the vote to non-citizens."
