Being a torch-bearer of non-violence and stickler for discipline,  Gandhiji will be very much  saddened by the present day political scenario and the way many corrupt leaders run the parties. He will regret  why he had worked hard for India's freedom  as  the leaders' failed to  run the country corruption free.  He will take a serious note of  every move of the politicians and the govt. employees in the corridors of power as they are answerable to the people.  He will hang his head in shame for the simple reason with exceptions many of the  politicians and  govt. servants carry on their duty without honesty and integrity. 

Presented below are some of the political cartoon  images of Gandhiji taken from many  sources. The credit is given below each image. Cartoons relating Gandhiji and our Indian leaders might interest you. Many of them are subtle,  thought-provoking and funny.

Picture of Gandhiji in the govt. office vinaylal.wordpress.com


Money changing hands: Gandhi’s photograph is hung in a prominent place in the office of  countless  government institutions  to inspire  employees and visitors to do their job well and be good and law-abiding citizens. The subtle interpretation of his picture on the wall is with his curious eyes peering down, he is carefully watching  over the honest transactions going on there and appreciate the  dedicated workers and reprimand those who lack work ethics and integrity.   Gandhi’s  framed photograph adorns Indian foreign offices across the globe as a symbol of nobility and honesty. On the  flip side of a coin, to some Gandhiji was  responsible for certain evils in our country - the unfortunate culture of strikes  and gherao by the employees, the partition of India, not giving importance to aspirations of the Hindus and women, etc.
Here, in the picture  on the wall  the netha is closing the eyes of Gandhiji
 so that he can accept the hush-hush money without any inhibition or fear. Here greed takes precedence over the ethical aspect of a leader.
In the top picture the politician is hesitating to talk about corruption and prefers discussion on secularism. Though one could see a gentle smile on Gandhi's picture, it is obvious, he is pained over the present political scenario where money plays a vital role.

Furious Gandhi statue. robzone.blogspot.com .fropky.com

Gandhi in fury: Why does Gandhi's statue on the city's main road  have fiery eyes? It is neither due to hot Delhi summer nor due to eye ailment. makes. It is our  irresponsible  nethas who ride past him almost daily bother Gandhiji.  When certain  dishonest politicians go past him, his eyes become red hot, sometime you can see a glow in them . Because, driven by greed and power, they do every thing that Gandhiji would loathe if he were alive. The father of our nation is quite upset about horse trading going on among the nethas to form a coalition government, caste politics, wet states and unfulfilled sky-high promises in the form of freebies made by the nethas on the election trail.

Weeping Gandhiji: Here Gandhiji wept over terrorists attack on Bombay that happened in the past in November 2008. He did the same thing during the recent Parliamentary election  period May 2019. He was quite sad over the way non-Hindu priests without any hesitation converted the  places of worship as  political platforms  and openly canvassed votes  among the members for certain regional parties. To many old Indian leaders like Gandhi, mixing politics with religion is not in the best interest of the country. If Gandhiji were alive he would have taken the cudgels against certain parties that openly indulged in caste-baiting and come down heavily on the Election commission officials for their inaction against undemocratic practices. 


Here in this image Gandhiji offers his upper cloth to a poor man. Though Indian economy is one of the few largest in the world, people in the lower strata of the society do not make any progress.  The rich become richer and the poor remain poor. What about the poorest among the poor? They need a loaf of bread, butter, a small place to dwell with a toilet. The PDS is a total failure and the essential  ration items do not reach the poorest among the poor. The ministry and the higher authorities are helpless as the mistakes are committed at the bottom level. Reason: Lack of punishment for wrong doing in public offices.
