Last Laughs: A job opportunity for Kejriwal, a toothless SC/ST Act and diesel’s chokehold

Text Size:

The best Indian 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 Supreme Court’s recent order diluting the SC/ST Atrocities Act and the consequent Bharat bandh was the dominant theme of today’s cartoons.

In the lead cartoon, Sajith Kumar deals with the simmering anger of the Dalit community since Narendra Modi came to power in 2014 and promised ‘achhe din’ for all.

Sandeep Adhwaryu in Times of India illustrates how the Supreme Court order left the already little used SC/ST Atrocities Act toothless.

Manjul in Mid-day pokes fun at Arvind Kejriwal’s unending apology spree with his latest apology to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. He suggests Kejriwal’s apologies would be put to better use in Modi’s cabinet.

Amal Chakrabarti in Sangbad Pratidin shows the petrol and diesel price hike choking the common person.

Madhav Joshi in Dainik Jagran shows that differences have arisen between the BJP and the RSS. The RSS chief recently said that the BJP’s oft-used phrase ‘Congress-mukt Bharat‘ was not a part of the Sangh’s language.
