In a rare exception, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh complimented BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman, known to be one of Narendra Modi's strongest defenders, on a national channel.
"Yesterday I was with Nirmala Sitaraman. Quite a gracious lady, and quite articulate but in the wrong party!" tweeted Mr Singh about the BJP spokesperson, on Monday night.
To Digvijay's back-ended complement, Sitharaman smiled, but said nothing.
Earlier, Digvijay also slammed BJP for demanding his resignation from Congress by saying that he is amused at such an appeal.
"BJP demands my expulsion from Congress Party ! I am amused", Singh said.
