Zugzwang, he suggests is the situation BJP has been put into.

"A player is said to be "in zugzwang" when any possible move will worsen their position. In game theory, changes a win to a loss," the Congress MP tweeted. (PTI Photo)

Shashi Tharoor commented on the latest developments in Maharashtra with another 'Word of the day' on Twitter. “#WordOfTheDay for #Maharashtra: Zugzwang. A situation in chess&other games where a player is compelled to move, forcing him into a weaker position. A player is said to be "in zugzwang" when any possible move will worsen their position. In game theory, changes a win to a loss.”

This comes after he commented on the situation in Maharashtra using the word ‘Snollygoster’ on November 23. India’s Twitterverse responded uniquely to this tweet commenting on their take of Maharashtra at the same time.
