Days after Mamata rejected the Congress’s choice of Pranab Mukherjee as its presidential candidate, Singh described her in TV interviews as “immature” and “erratic”, adding that there was a limit to the party’s patience.

The Congress distanced itself from the remarks, saying, “Digvijaya Singh is not officially authorised to speak on behalf of the party.”
