Reports had suggested that both BJP and Congress had used the services of the firm that is now accused of stealing Facebook data. The data had been used by the firm to manipulate voter behaviour through many devious methods which included targeted ads and fake news.

Chris Wylie, former director of research at Cambridge Analytica and whistleblower who exposed the Facebook scam of Cambridge Analytica has named the Congress party in a deposition before British MPs

MP’s question :  [If you] focus on the world’s biggest democracy with lots and lots of elections over time, India was being a prime source of business wasn’t? You mentioned they [Cambridge Analytica] have done quite a bit of work in India. Could you just describe what you are aware of?

Chris Wylie: I believe their [Cambridge Analytica’s] client was Congress. I know that they have done all kinds of projects both regional… I don’t remember a national project, but regional… I mean India is big. One state can be as big as Britain. But they do have offices there and they do have staff there. I believe I have some documentation in India which I can also provide. 

BJP leader and union minister Ravishankar Prasad have demanded an apology from the Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

The Congress spokesperson has denied any connection with Cambridge Analytica in a press conference. He asked as to why an FIR has not been registered in the matter.

It remains to be seen as to how this controversy will develop over the days.
