New Update

Many international reports released recently ranked India low on the democracy index. For instance the report released by an independent research institute V-Dem called India an ‘electoral autocracy’. Another report released by the American non-profit organisation Freedom House, describes India as ‘partly free’. So, are these reports telling the truth? Or is this a manipulated fake narrative on India by vested interests?

Speakers: Deepak Gupta, former judge of Supreme Court; MG Devasahayam, retired IAS officer; Pavan Duggal, senior lawyer; PDT Achary, former Secretary General of Lok Sabha and constitutional expert; Ranjana Kumari, Director, Centre for Social Research and Ullekh NP, senior journalist and author discuss the reports and the problems plaguing the world’s largest democracy.
