Bengaluru: Union Food and Civil Supplies Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said on Friday that the political alliance of Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad is bound to fail in the upcoming assembly elections in Bihar.

Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal-United leader Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad recently joined hands ahead of the assembly elections in the state.

The combination of both leaders is not at all formidable, Paswan said during a press conference here.

The minister also said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be the ultimate winner in the upcoming Bihar elections.

Paswan added that the party will not name the chief ministerial candidate for the Bihar elections and will replicate the model executed in the elections in other states like Haryana.

Comparing the development of Bihar with Karnataka, Paswan said: “Where is Bihar when compared to a state like Karnataka? It has buildings, roads and infrastructure. None of this is in Bihar despite Nitish Kumar’s 10-year reign.”

According to a report in UK’s Channel 4 News, the cache of campaign data from a Cambridge Analytica source details 136,000 individuals in the US state of Colorado, “along with each person’s personality and psychological profile”.

“The data, which dates from 2014, was used by Cambridge Analytica to target specific messages at residents who would be most susceptible to them,” the report said.

Cambridge Analytica had earlier claimed that it has erased the data from the public domain. The company received the user data from a Facebook app years ago that purported to be a psychological research tool, however, the firm was not authorised to have that information.

Cambridge Analytica has been accused of influencing the result of the United Kingdom’s 2016 Brexit referendum and of the 2016 American presidential election that brought Donald Trump to the White House.

In a recent appearance before British Parliament, ex-Cambridge programmer Christopher Wylie shocked delegates by stating that he had no doubt that his former employer had manipulated the Brexit referendum and the 2016 US presidential election and broken the law. IANS
