The opposition created an uproar over PM Modi's remarks on Manmohan Singh made during Gujarat election campaign.
There was an outcry at the parliament on Wednesday as well over PM Modi's remark.
Reportedly, PM Modi had made a statement previously stating that Manmohan Singh had allegedly colluded with Pakistan to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Gujarat.
"There were media reports yesterday about a meeting at Mani Shankar Aiyar's house. It was attended by Pakistan's high commissioner, Pakistan's former foreign minister, India's former vice president and former prime minister Manmohan Singh," PM Modi spoke at an election rally at Palanpur earlier this month.
Congress has strongly condemned PM Modi's remark, demanding his apology for the same.
