In today’s featured cartoon, Alok Nirantar takes a swipe at IAS officers Sanjeev Khirwar and his wife Rinku Dugga, who were transferred hours after The Indian Express ran an article on their alleged misuse of facilities at Delhi’s Thyagraj Stadium. According to the report, athletes and coaches training at the stadium had alleged that they were asked to wrap up earlier than usual so the couple could walk their dog there.

Sandeep Adhwaryu takes a dig at the Congress releasing a ‘report card’ on the ‘failures’ of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre, at a time when it is itself grappling with a slew of high-profile exits including that of Patidar leader Hardik Patel, former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar, and former Union minister Kapil Sibal, all of whom have expressed discontentment with the way the party is functioning.

R. Prasad comments on Kapil Sibal’s exit from the Congress, which has also come as a blow to the G-23 group of ‘dissident’ leaders who are vocal critics of the party’s functioning and leadership. Originally a group of 23, the G-23 is down to four of its original members after Sibal’s departure.
