The selected cartoons appeared first in other publications, either in print or online, or on social media, and are credited appropriately.

In today’s featured cartoon, Kirtish Bhatt alludes to the ongoing political crisis in Jharkhand, where the UPA government shifted 31 MLAs to the Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh to avert any poaching attempt by the BJP. This was done as Chief Minister Hemant Soren faces the prospect of disqualification as an MLA for allegedly violating electoral laws. In the cartoon, a politician can be seen saying: “GPS should be fitted to the MLAs soon after they win as it makes tracking easier.”
