Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who is known for his extra-ordinary dictionary, took out another 'alien' word from his dictionary to explain the political fiasco in Maharashtra that forced the ex-CM Devendra Fadnavis to resign. 'Zugzwang', as Tharoor spells the word, is a situation in chess&other games where a player is compelled to move, forcing him into a weaker position. While in 'Zugzwang', any further move may worsen their position.
