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, R. Prasad mocks the Congress leadership after the party’s Working Committee decided Saturday to hold internal elections only in August-September next year, and Rahul Gandhi gave a speech that members need to have ‘ideological clarity‘.

Sajith Kumar also mocks the Congress after the CWC meeting, depicting that the party can’t seem to decide whether to fight its own leaders who are calling for institutional changes, or the ruling BJP.

E.P. Unny | The Indian Express

E.P. Unny suggests that former Congress leaders like Mamata Banerjee and Sharad Pawar should start an ex-Congress Working Committee, and include P.V. Balachandran, the party’s former chief in Kerala’s Wayanad (Rahul Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency), who recently quit over its inability to take a stand against the BJP.

Sandeep Adhwaryu | The Times of India

Sandeep Adhwaryu takes a shot at the media throwing up various ‘probing questions’ on the recent targeted killings of civilians from minority communities in Jammu and Kashmir. At least 9 people have been shot dead by terrorists this month in the Valley.

Manjul | Vibes of India

In September, it was reported that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s approval ratings rose to 70 per cent, the highest among 13 world leaders. This month, that image tanked when India ranked 101 out of 116 countries in the Global Hunger Index. Manjul mocks the Modi government’s different reactions to the two indices.
