In today’s featured cartoon, R. Prasad alludes to how the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is facing criticism from the BJP and Congress for referring to Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia as “today’s Bhagat Singh” — an avowed Marxist. The AAP claims that CBI may arrest Sisodia in the alleged excise policy scam “despite finding no evidence against him”.
Referring to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s “rupee is not weakening, dollar is strengthening” remark, E.P. Unny depicts how AAP seems to be gaining some ground in poll-bound Gujarat where it aims to emerge as primary opposition to the ruling BJP.
Sandeep Adhwaryu, too, alludes to Sitharaman’s remark to paint a picture of an Opposition which is struggling to counter with the BJP’s popularity among voters.
Kirtish Bhatt gives his take on the release of textbooks in Hindi for three subjects for MBBS students as part of the Madhya Pradesh government’s initiative to impart medical education in Hindi. In the illustration, a man says: “Government should also do something about doctor’s handwriting. Can never figure out the language in which they prescribe medicine.”
Satish Acharya, too, comments on the central government’s push for medical education in Hindi, evident by the release of three books in Hindi for medical biochemistry, anatomy and medical physiology for MBBS students by Union Home Minister Amit Shah last week.
