Evidence pointing towards a direct link between Congress and Cambridge Analytica emerges

An image of a poster with the Congress symbol hanging in Cambridge Analytica’s office has raised eyebrows of political observers in India. The image has led to heated debates on Indian TV channels on Congress link to Cambridge Analytica. BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said that ‘Congress has been caught red handed with their dirty hand poster and therefore there is no escape’ while commenting on the issue.

This is the second evidence linking the party to the now infamous firm which has been misusing data of citizens for the sake of manipulating elections around the world. Earlier, the whistleblower James Wylie had revealed that the Congress was the client of Cambridge Analytica in his deposition before the British MPs.

Some supporters of the Congress have claimed that the poster behind Alexander Nix was photoshopped. However the journalist who was in the room has said that the image was authentic.

Some journalists have proposed the theory that Cambridge Analytica might not have been associated with the Congress party. They asked whether this was form a ‘pitch’ or ‘contract’ .

In an interview to Barkha Dutt, the Congress social media chief Divya Spandana/Ramya has claimed that Cambridge Analytica approached the Congress party’s leaders with some proposals but it was never given a contract/deal.

It remains to be seen as to how the Congress – Cambridge Analytica saga will emerge in future.
