  1. Politicians they’ll even milk a dead cow if need be to further their own selfish agendas.47 were murdered in Pulwana and now 20 more plus all the earlier body bags. Vajpaye came we got KARGIL and 600 body bags Modis here and we are still counting body bags amidst a lot of chest thumping standing on these corpses to gain political mileage just shows how low this lot will stoop to further their own agendas

  2. कहीं न कही ये कार्टून वामपंथी सोच को दर्शाता है । मोदी जी अन्य राजनेताओं के अपेक्षा देश को सही दिशा में पूरे आत्मसम्मान के साथ लेकर चलने रहे हैं ।।

  3. Bjp and its supporters are encashing on the army security forces and the martyrs. Pulwama was best example. Same repeats now. Shame on such people.

  4. Modiji,s hugs have paid rich dividends.India is elected to UNSC with record votes despite China and Pak opposition .

  5. These cartoons are in poor taste and completely goes against the interests of army and Government.One of these cartoons also show absolutely nil knowledge of cartoonist about the diplomatic challenges,India over come under the leadership of Mr.Modi,and also the number of partnerships it gained across the globe to strengthen it’s Integrity .
    These are neither humorous nor enlightening,doesn’t deserve to be called Cartoon.

    • Why man just bcoz its all about exposing government bad policies by cartoons they are not good. For God sake please stop modi bhakti because the nation is more important than modi,godi media,congress,aap etc
      Please let’s come together and question government who and only who are responsible for death of 20 soldiers and also pressurise govt to take strict actions against china and maintain transparency

      Remember one thing
      Govt is for the people
      By the people

  6. “Army’s plea to politicians” is a false title. All of these are some cartoonists opinions presented as the army’s.
