In today’s featured cartoon, Irshad Kaptan alludes to the defection of elected representatives to a rival party — for instance, eight Congress MLAs in Goa joining the BJP Wednesday, barely six months after the assembly polls. In the illustration, a politician can be seen telling a reporter: “My vicharadhara (ideology)? To flow with the dhara (stream).”

Alok Nirantar comments on the blame game that erupted in Maharashtra after the state lost a multi-crore investment in the form of a Vedanta-Foxconn joint venture to BJP-ruled Gujarat, months after the Eknath Shinde-led faction of the Shiv Sena rebelled against party chief Uddhav Thackeray only to join hands with the BJP.

E.P. Unny, too, refers to how the Maharashtra CM Shinde has been blaming the former Uddhav Thackeray-led government for the state losing the Vedanta-Foxconn semiconductor plant to Gujarat, where assembly elections are due later this year.

Manjul, referring to the devastating floods in Pakistan, takes a jibe at the dispassionate response to climate change-induced disasters around the world and how they do not evoke concrete action by countries unless they are they ones affected by such disasters.
