Ravi Shankar Prasad alleges Congress' links with Cambridge Analytica

New Delhi, Mar 21 (ANI): Union Minister of Electronics and Information Technology bombarded the Congress Party with questions alleging links with the data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica.

He said, "I want to ask Congress Party, will it rely on data theft and manipulation to win elections? Will the party adopt the same way as Cambridge Analytica to woo the voters? What is the role of the company with Rahul Gandhi?" The minister also warned against misuse of social media platforms and said, "We promote freedom of press, we also promote flow of ideas on social media but as an IT minister I will not encourage nor support misuse of social media to wrongly influence voters." Facebook is facing a major backlash after reports emerged that the political data analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica, accessed the data of its 50 million users without their permission.
