Actor Kangana Rananut on Wednesday reacted to the protests in Amritsar which broke out over her recent 'terrorist' remark. 

She re-tweeted the Punjab Congress' post, and wrote: "First congress in Maharashtra threatened me and beat my posters with chappals now congress in Punjab burning my effigies, seems like a clear case of mistaken identity. Am I some minister or a great opposition leader? Who they think I am? This is rather flattering @INCIndia." 

Kangana's comments on the farmers' protests on the three farm Bills passed by Parliament have drawn a severe backlash. 

Sharing pictures of the protest on the microblogging website, the Punjab Congress wrote: "Under the leadership of  @AkshaySharmaOrg, @NSUIPunjab burnt the effigies of Kangana Ranaut at Amritsar. They further criticised her for crossing all limits by disrespecting the farmers by labelling them terrorists. #IRejectAntiFarmerAct #KisanVirodhiNarendraModi." 

In a tweet on Sunday, the actor had termed the protesters as "the same terrorists who indulged in bloodshed even as no citizen lost citizenship due to CAA" as she re-tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  

NSUI Punjab, president, Akshay Sharma also addressed the issue on the microblogging website.
