Congress sharing users' data with Singapore-based firm: BJP
“Inspired by Sonia Gandhi’s all power no accountability dictum, Congress will take all your data, even share it worldwide with organisations like Cambridge Alytica but will not take responsibility of it! Their own policy says so,” the BJP leader said. Earlier, the BJP accused the Congress of compromising tiol security by roping in political data alytics firm Cambridge Alytica to run its 2019 election campaign.
The London-based data consultancy firm is currently in the midst of a global row after reports surfaced that the data of more than 50 million Facebook users were ippropriately used by Cambridge Alytica, in activities allegedly connected with US President Dold Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.
