The best cartoons of the day, chosen by editors at ThePrint.

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

The lead cartoon by Mir Suhail for News 18 is a comment on environmental pollution and its deadly effects on human lives. This World Environment Day, the cartoonist warns of the doomsday that human race is slowly heading towards.

Sajith Kumar shows the damage that indiscriminate use of plastic has done to the environment. On 3 June, the carcass of a whale which choked on 80 kg of plastic was found on the coast of Thailand.

Cartoonist Awantha Artigala has a laugh at how Indian politicians always attack critics and blame social media instead of addressing the real issues.

Sandeep Adhwaryu in the Times of India takes a dig at how politicians continue to play vote bank politics on the issue of farmers’ suicides.

Keshav in The Hindu makes a sarcastic comment at RBI issuing currency coins of higher denominations even as the government suddenly announced a rate cut in fuel price by just one paise, drawing a huge flak from different quarters.
