The Tamil Nadu government has been goofing up when it comes to issuing the widely publicised Smart Cards. In a recent mix-up, a 64-year-old from Kamalapuram in Salem recently received her smart card, and it was actor Kajal Aggarwal’s photo instead of her picture.
Addressing the media, Saroja’s relative said, “The picture on the smart card is of an actor, Kajal Aggarwal. The picture on the smart card and Saroja are not related in any way. Another woman from our neighbour also has a picture which does not look like her. How are we supposed to use this to get ration? We again have to go and get this photo changed now. Why can’t the officials do their work properly.”
Many people from the same village claim that there are several mistakes on their smart cards. PMK leader Ramadoss criticised the government for these mistakes and said that smart cards are bring issued with photos of actors, trees etc. It is all due to the negligence of the government staff, he said.
The smart card with the picture of actor Kajal Aggarwal has gone viral on social media.
