Singh (77) is a two-time MLA from Seoni-Malwa seat in the state's Hoshangabad district.
The BJP Thursday released its third list of 32 candidates, leaving only six seats, in the 230-member MP House, for which no names have been declared so far.
These are Seoni-Malwa, from which Singh is a sitting MLA, Panna, Lakhnadoun, Bhopal North, Mahidpur and Garoth.
Sitting among his supporters, the Sikh leader tried to conceal his tears by covering his face for a few moments.
According to a supporter of Singh, the BJP has told the veteran MLA that he would not be nominated from Seoni-Malwa.
When contacted, Singh refused to divulge his next move and said that he was deliberating with supporters as well as senior leaders in Itarsi town in Hoshangabad.
"Instead of Vanaprashta (retirement in forest), he wants to stay put in Grihastha (household)," he added.
Meanwhile, the Congress took a dig at the BJP and said that the latter had a habit of treating senior leaders in such a manner.
Asked whether the Congress was ready to field Singh from Hoshangabad constituency, as it has already announced a candidate from Seoni-Malwa seat, Gupta said such matters were decided by the party's high command.
Congress sources, however, said Singh had been offered a ticket by the opposition party to contest from Hoshangabad.
The BJP and Congress are yet to declare candidates for six and 17 seats respectively.
