India's External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has slammed the rights bodies such as Sweden's V-Dem Institute and US government-funded NGO Freedom House for downgrading India in “democracy rankings” while identifying them as "hypocrites". "We have a set of self-appointed custodians of the world who find it very difficult to stomach that somebody in India is not looking for their approval," Mr. Jaishankar said.
