Bhagat has decided that he won’t defend his opinions or explain his stance on social media anymore.

He wrote a 574-word post on Facebook explaining his ‘No More Explanations Policy’ or ‘NMEP.’

I won’t abuse with the same intensity, as you hate a leader or party because, well, I simply don’t hate them or anyone that way. My views on the economy and policy are consistent, and if you actually were inclined to listen and learn I would have explained so. However, whenever I try to clarify, it makes things worse. You feel exposed and threatened and outrage even more – because obviously admitting you were wrong is something you never do on Twitter.
