Lucknow, Feb 05: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday launched a scathing attack at the government, questioning the illegal detention of former chief ministers and wondering whether 'India is still a democracy or not.'

Taking to Twitter, she wrote, "It's been six months since two ex-Chief Ministers have been incarcerated without any charges and millions of people were locked down in J&K."
