In today’s featured cartoon, Satish Acharya mocks the Karnataka Congress for continuing its padayatra (march) amid the third wave of Covid. The cartoonist shows state Congress chief D.K. Shivakumar giving the justification that the march was to tire out the coronavirus. Many people in the march were spotted without masks, and the party was eventually forced to call off after five leaders tested positive on the fifth day.
