Christopher Wylie, the Cambridge Analytica whistle blower, has put out a Tweet with "evidence" that Cambridge Analytica worked in India. On Twitter, pictures of the Congress party's logo being present in Nix's offices in London are now being circulated.
Other aspects of the document cover the company's work across different states, including during the 2003 Rajasthan election for a "major state party"; Madhya Pradesh in 2003 for a "national party" to identify swing voters; a full political survey for a "major party" during the 2007 Uttar Pradesh elections; and managing the campaigns of a number of Lok Sabha candidates for the 2009 national elections.

SCL also has an India arm called Strategic Communication Laboratories Private Limited, The Print reported last week. SCL India also assisted the party in understanding how to use the diverse findings.
He made the fresh revelations on Twitter, a day after he told lawmakers in Britain that India's Congress party was a client of the UK-based firm. [Nix] wanted that India data should be hosted on his server. Farelly described India as a "country rife with opportunities for destabilisation". It is curious why, after such a long and successful run, they did no work in India after 2012, especially with a big election season in 2013-14.
Christopher Wylie says Cambridge Analytica "don't care whether or not it's legal as long as it gets the job done". "What can be a bigger lie than this?" Surjewala said Mr. Prasad and the Modi government refuse to answer these questions and "they only want to divert the agenda".

"What I heard was that he was working on some kind of deal of some sort", he said.
"This has exposed Rahul Gandhi who was denying all along", adding, "Congress and Rahul Gandhi must now apologise". "Cambridge Analytica did no work in any capacity in the 2016 European Union referendum". Given how it has been losing election after election since then, and losing badly, it is unlikely that it had an aggressive political consultant like SCL/Cambridge Analytica, which works mostly with conservative parties. Cambridge Analytica executives said the company worked for Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta's 2013 and 2017 campaigns, in addition to operating in countries like Malaysia and Brazil. Trump's campaign hired Cambridge Analytica in June 2016 and paid it more than US$6.2 million.
The newly released documents sparked an outcry in India, where the government formally asked both Cambridge Analytica and Facebook in the past week whether Indian citizens' personal data had been compromised or used to affect the outcome of elections.
Nearly $100bn has been wiped off the value of Facebook in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
