In a letter to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, Mann requested to direct Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clarify the remarks. He said he should also be allowed to pose some questions to Modi. He said if that was not possible, the speaker could get the 'derogatory' remakes expunged.

Mann also suggested that if the remarks could not be expunged then he be allowed to to approach the privileges committee of Lok Sabha.

Taking on the critics, Modi had said in the Lok Sabha, "I generally tell people 'ghee piyo' (drink clarified butter)...but if Mann were to tell people, he will ask them to drink something else."

Mann has been a strident critic of Modi, openly mocking him in public rallies.
