"BJP lying factory at work: Journalist set to break big story on how Cambridge Analytica (CA) was paid to infiltrate and sabotage the Congress in 2012," said Gandhi in Twitter.

"BJP rushes cabinet minister to lie and spin fake news: Congress worked with CA! Real story vanishes," he added attaching an NDTV story with headline "Whistleblower Reveals Cambridge Analytica's India Link".
