In today’s featured cartoon, Alok Nirantar’s cartoon refers to the poll battle for Gujarat which votes on 1 and 5 December. The BJP, which is in power for 27 years, is facing a strong fight from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) this time. The Congress, in contrast, has so far not gone big on mega rallies in the state.
