Those in power are real tukde tukde gang: Chidambaram

In a series of tweets, former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said: "India has slipped 10 places in the Democracy Index.

Those who are in power are the real tukde tukde gang."

"The world is alarmed by the direction India is taking. Every patriotic Indian should be alarmed too," he added.

Chidambaram's remarks came a day after India fell 10 notches to settle at 51st rank on the Democracy Index 2019, a listing of the most and the least democratic nations published annually by The Economist Intelligence Unit, a news and general affairs publication.

The BJP has been using 'tukde tukde gang' reference to target the Congress and others.
