35th among democracies!!!

For once, Indian political parties have good reason to sneer at the 'Economist's Democracy Index'. India is ranked 35th overall and 5th among 'flawed democracies' just below South Africa, Chile, Taiwan and Cape Verde. The combined population of these 4 countries would barely equal a couple of Indian cities not to speak of the diversity of religion,culture and language that exists in India. In an election year with 741 million eligible voters, all we can do is snort!
