Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 22: State minister for medical education Dr K Sudhakar, stated that government and private employees have to compulsorily make use of Aarogya Setu app towards regulating the spread of coronavirus.

He was speaking at a press meet here. He said that only those employees who have downloaded Aarogya Setu app would be allowed entry into office. Those who fail to comply with this instruction will not be permitted to enter office premises. Private companies including information technology ones have already issued instructions to their employees on this issue, he stated.

The home ministry, which had released guidelines on May 17, had asked the employees to make use of Aarogya Setu app in mobile phones at offices and work sites in order to maintain safety. It had asked people to get rid of the notion that information in the mobile gets leaked through the app. The ministry had also stated that the app helps in finding out the presence of coronavirus infected persons.

    The Arogya Setu app, is a sophisticated surveillance system, outsourced to a pvt operator, with no institutional oversight - raising serious data security & privacy concerns. Technology can help keep us safe; but fear must not be leveraged to track citizens without their consent.

    IF THE AROGYA SETHU APP HELPS IN FINDING PERSONS INFECTED WITH CORONA VIRUS, THEN WHY HAS THIS APP NOT BEEN APPLIED TO CHECK ALL THOSE STRANDED MIGRANTS BROUGHT IN FROM OTHER STATES AT SOURCE FOR TRAVEL TO UDUPI DISTRICT LATELY.

    Please spare our mobile no space to download new application. Or provide free smart phone with applications. Don't act as a Hitler.

    It goes against the freedom of persons to choose as well as right to not download the app.
    Enforcing these rules using the Pandemic garb hints something is fishy with this app which govt wants to snoop on us with.
