    Rajasthan continues to remain volatile on day six of the Gurjar protests. Raje had last night said she will hold talks with Bhainsla to finalise the agreement.

    volatile = volatile Show phonetics
    1 likely to change suddenly and unexpectedly or suddenly become violent or angry

    From (Cambridge dictionary)

    But still I cannot understand the meaning of `volatile' in my context.

    Could anyone explain it please?

    Re: volatile

    The political situation in Rajasthan is 'likely to change suddenly and unexpectedly'; some people there may 'suddenly become violent or angry' [and because of the political situation, that violence and anger will spread quickly and in unpredictable ways/places/directions]. I don't see the problem
