The video of the speech went viral, forcing Dangi to apologise.

Joining battle, Thakur tweeted on Saturday, "Congressmen have old experience of burning people, from the Sikhs in 1984 to Naina Sahni (victim of 1995 tandoor murder in Delhi) in the tandoor.

@RahulGandhi termed (me) terrorist and his MLA Govardhan Dangi will burn me. So, I am reaching Biaora at his residence in Multanpura at 4 pm on December 8, 2019. Burn me."
