Last Laughs: Justice in Yogi’s ‘Encounter Pradesh’ and Rahul Gandhi’s T20 fast

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.

In the lead cartoon, Kirtish Bhatt in BBC Hindi illustrates the horrific set of events that have taken place under Yogi Adityanath’s watch in Uttar Pradesh. A woman from Unnao district alleged that she had been gangraped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and others. She even tried to immolate herself outside Adityanath’s home after which her father was taken into custody, and later died while in custody.

This is a strong reminder that all is not well in Adityanath’s ‘Encounter Pradesh’. Satish Acharya in Sify shows the condition of justice system in Uttar Pradesh – where guns supposedly do most of the talking.

Nala Ponnappa mocks the Election Commission’s voters list for Karnataka. Congress leaders have alleged that several names were missing from the electoral rolls.

Several cartoonists poked fun at Rahul Gandhi’s nationwide day-long fast for communal harmony in India. Sanket Jack of Jackartoons wittily compared Gandhi’s three hour fast to the T20 of fasting. Sajith Kumar took a jibe at Congress ministers eating chhole bature before the fast.
