New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday slammed party spokesperson Shashi Tharoor for his effusive praise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling his party colleague "immature" and a "chameleon".

Aiyar also said he was "deeply disappointed" that an "intelligent" man like Tharoor should want to rush to judgment in this manner and come out with this effusive remarks.

"This kind of chameleon like praising just after a few days(after Modi coming to power) is uncalled for. It demonstrates great immaturity," Aiyar told a TV news channel.

In a surprise praise for Modi, Tharoor had on Wednesday said from the AICC podium that the opposition would be "churlish" in ignoring the voices of inclusive outreach of the new Prime Minister.
