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.
प्रधानमंत्री जी कोई सो रहा हो उसे जगाया जा सकता है, जिसे ग़लतफ़हमी हो उसे समझाया जा सकता है मगर जो सोने की ऐक्टिंग करे, नासमझने की ऐक्टिंग करे उसे आपके समझाने से क्या फ़र्क़ पड़ेगा? ये वही आतंकी हैं CAA से एक भी इंसान की सिटिज़ेन्शिप नहीं गयी मगर इन्होंने ख़ून की नदियाँ बहा दी. https://t.co/ni4G6pMmc3— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 20, 2020
NSUI Punjab, president, Akshay Sharma also addressed the issue on the microblogging website.
This is a new low for you @KangnaTeam. Not only is your arrogance demeaning to our farmers, but it is such a shame for every Indian too. Enough with your half baked knowledge, and two faced bigotry. https://t.co/EeYbhOZ20m— Akshay Sharma (@AkshaySharmaOrg) September 23, 2020
