“The cartoon refers to the slew of incidents involving sitting MPs having to give up their safe seats for "VIP" members whose victory is more important to the party. For example, earlier this month senior BJP member Murli Manohar Joshi who is the current (sitting) MP of Varanasi was asked to give up his seat for PM candidate Narendra Modi. Varanasi is expected to be won by BJP (hence, a 'safe' seat for BJP), so Modi's win is somewhat assured. Because of this, sitting MPs in safe seats are depicted as feeling insecure. They often have to put up a brave face in interest of the party, even though they are not happy with this. As a result, situations arise when there are winners and losers within the same party.”
