RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav attacks PM Modi, Nitish Kumar on Cambridge Analytica issue
RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after the alleged links of BJP and Janata Dal United with British data firm Cambridge Analytica came to the fore.
Hitting out at PM Modi and Nitish Kumar, Tejaswi Yadav said that they were perhaps the only two politicians in the country who took help of PR agencies like Cambridge Analytica to create hype around there non-existent work.
Taking to Twitter, Tejaswi said that both the politicians were answerable to the country for their party's links with the controversial data firm Cambridge Analytica.
"Cambridge Analytica is attacked & it's website is down in India, not to safeguard interests of Indians but to hide claims of it's services provided to BJP/JDU in the past, as is evident from their relations. Why PM Modi visited FB headquarters?" he tweeted.

After it has become clear that Cambridge Analytica used the Facebook profiles of millions of people in the country to influence elections, Tejaswi Yadav questioned if the government can challenge Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg and he can be summoned to India, why can't the government summon fraudsters like Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi and Vijay Mallya, who have robbed the country and escaped abroad.
The RJD leader said that Cambridge Analytica was attacked and its website has been brought down in India to hide the claims of its services provided to BJP and JDU in the past, and not to safeguard the interest of Indians.
