Rekha Sharma shared a screenshot of whatsapp message in her tweet which said that Kangna Ranaut will be beaten to death with stones and rods like Sadhus in Palghar. 

Sarnaik in his rebuttal tweeted tagging Rekha Sharma, “First point in your screenshot shared is fake and a sad attempt to spread malicious lies and incite communal disharmony on the behest of BJP. I have never said anything like this and request you to immediately delete it.”

Pratap Sarnaik further said, “I stand by what I said and again reiterate my point of not tolerating any disrespect to our Motherland. We have not forgotten the sacrifice of 106 heroes who laid down their lives and ensured the inclusion of Mumbai in Maharashtra & we will follow their footsteps to protect our Pride.  You hold an important position and I request you to maintain the dignity of the same and not be a pawn in the hand of your political masters to further their agenda.”
