Political data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica still has not deleted the entirety of the Facebook user data it acquired through questionable means in 2015 despite requests that it do so, Channel 4 News reported.
While Wylie's reference to the Congress has kicked up a political storm, Paul-Olivier Dehaye - of PersonalData.IO, a company that helps monitor and control the use of personal data - who also provided testimony to the committee called on Indian, Romanian and Kenyan journalists to work together to piece together the sequence of events leading up to the death of Wylie's predecessor, Romanian national Dan Muresan, who died in Kenya.
Former Lib Dem colleague Ben Rathe had a less complementary description of Wylie, tweeting that he "thinks he's Edward Snowden, when he's actually Walter Mitty" - a reference to a fictional character with a vivid fantasy life.
Whistleblower Christopher Wylie, giving evidence to parliament's digital, culture, media and sport committee, also hinted at links between the UK's Prevent counter-extremism strategy and SCL, Cambridge's Analytica's parent company.
SCL India SCL India has a database of over 600 districts and 7 lakhs villages, which is constantly being updated.
In 2003 Rajasthan elections A major state party contracted SCL India to carry out two pieces of work, one internal and aimed at assessing the party's organisational strength (party audit), the other external and looking at the nature of the voting population, and more particularly, the attitudes and behaviours of politically-active individuals within the state.
"Wylie, who came to the hearing with his hair dyed pink, said that besides the work for Congress, CA has "done all kinds of projects" in India".
Domestic media reports have said that Cambridge Analytica and its India partner have been in talks with both the Congress and the BJP for a possible collaboration for their 2019 Lok Sabha election campaigns.

Highs will be in the low 50s around lunchtime in the Denver area, with temperatures dropping into the low 40s by late afternoon. This air mass will significantly drop temperatures by Friday and is also expected to kick off heavier snow for much of Montana.
The slides that Wylie also put out reiterated claims made on OBI's website that SCL India has over 10 regional offices across the country. I don't remember a national project but I know regionally.
However, he said the main objective of Cambridge Analytica, SCL and other linked companies, was not merely to win elections, but to use their role in those elections to "capture" governments and then use those contacts to change laws and regulations for the benefit of other companies. One report stated that Tyagi had "accompanied Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix and his team while they were in Delhi". The documents say that the USA arm of the company, formed in June 2014, could participate as a vendor of technology as long as Nix, a Briton, was "recused from the substantive management of any such clients involved in United States elections".
In the document he shared on Twitter, it can be found that Cambridge Analytica has been working in India for several parties since 2003.
Wiley said that a Cambridge Analytica-linked company handled hacked data from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. "Congress and Rahul Gandhi must now apologize", Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
"We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you", Zuckerberg said.
