In today’s featured cartoon, Alok Nirantar illustrates a ‘worried’ Charanjit Singh Channi as a party member wonders if the Punjab CM would need a stringent security arrangement when he will visit Delhi. The allusion is to Wednesday’s major security breach as PM Narendra Modi’s convoy was stuck on a flyover near Hussainiwala in Punjab’s Ferozepur district.
