"Will Not Compromise". Ok… But You Haven't Done Anything


At a meeting of all BJP law-makers in Parliament today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged them "not to address the nation" out of turn. "I will not compromise on this," he warned.


That was in the beginning of December. After that, BJP MP's have shot off their mouths repeatedly. To point out a few recent ones:

To be fair, Sakshi Maharaj did later apologise for that remark and said "I do not consider him a rashtra bhakta (patriot). I might have said something by mistake."

Just curious (and I can't be the only one) - When Modi said, he will not compromise - what was it that he actually meant? Did he mean just convincing the MP / MLA to apologise for speaking out of turn? Just an apology? Hardly seems like an 'uncompromising' stand. Further, it's not as if an apology has been put in for all the offensive remarks.

Clearly one thing that hasn't changed is - It's still impossible to figure out what a politician's statement actually means / implies. We still have party stooges (of every political party) informing us that the statements have been misconstrued, misinterpreted, misquoted.

So… will a BJP stooge spokesperson kindly clarify?
