He asked the media to boycott the Congress over the issue.
"I am unaware about any such happening. Moreover he was not on official tour to Shimla," he said.
The Congress leader lost his temper at TV reporters who met him at the Punjab government guest house here and questioned him over an article he wrote, recalling a slur he directed at Modi in 2017 which was latched onto by the BJP to target the Congress during the Gujarat polls.
Hussain also hit out at Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, saying 'both Aiyar and Sidhu are fond of abusing Indian Prime Minister and applauding Pakistan Prime Minister" and claimed Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh forbade Sidhu from campaigning in the state.
"Have you ever heard that star campaigner of any party is not doing electioneering in his home state. While Amarinder forbade him from campaigning, Sidhu made excuse of sore throat.'
"Punjab minister and Congress star campaigner Navjot Sidhu is fond of issuing pro-Pak statements like another Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar who once said during his Pakistan visit that Pakistan's help is required to remove Modi.
"That is why Amarinder has forbidden Sidhu from campaigning in Punjab as the former knows that whatever Sidhu says will benefit the BJP,'" Hussain said.
