One Way Of Settling - Ahmed in Pioneer, Lucknow, India, 1939.

The year 1939 opened with a serious rift in the Congress ranks. Who was to preside over its annual session? The contestants for the post were Dr. Pattabhi Sitaramayya, who enjoyed the backing of the Working Committee, and Subhas Chandra Bose, the spokesman of the Left who was seeking re-election. In an election manifesto issued on January 20, Bose declared that with "the progressive sharpening of anti-imperialist struggle" in the country "new ideas and ideologies and problems and programmes" had emerged, and a feeling was growing that "as in other free countries the Congress Presidential election in India should be fought on the basis of different problems and programmes." Ahmed, the cartoonist of the Pioneer, Lucknow, shows the two contestants locked in physical combat with Gandhi and other members of the High Command committed spectators.
