Why is everyone searching the meaning of “Pliable”?

Although it is nothing as difficult as floccinaucinihilipilification, when it comes to Indian politicians, one might as well keep wondering over their vocabulary and searching the meaning of the words uttered by these politicians.


The length of the word itself tells that it’s not Shashi Tharoor this time who has set everyone gets back to their dictionaries. The things are on the other pole this time. It is the Congress president Rahul Gandhi, due to whom people are searching the meaning of a word, they might already know.

For those who don’t know, “Pliable” means “easily bent or flexible”, and here is the whole context.
Rahul Gandhi recently commented on Narendra Modi’s interview with ANI, and it was not the PM whom he criticized. He, instead, took to the ANI editor, Smita Prakash and called the journalist “pliable”. 

And here’s what Smita Prakash replied:

It is not the first time that Gandhi made people google a word furiously, in order to make sense of his statement. Before this, it was his comment on BJP, accusing it of “Jumla strikes” and causing the searches for “Jumla” to go high.

Doesn’t Indian politicians’ intelligent and use of language make masses question their sanity sometimes?
