Congress president Rahul Gandhi hit back at BJP yet again on Cambridge Analytica allegations. 

A day after he said that the government ''invented story'' on Congress and ''data theft'' to divert attention from the 39 Indians who were slaughtered by the  ISIS in Iraq's Mosul, the Gandhi scion fired yet another salvo at the BJP.  This time he accused the BJP of paying Cambridge Analytica to ''infiltrate and sabotage'' the Congress in 2012.
