The Himachal Pradesh Congress MLA Asha Kumari alleged had to face severe reverse on Friday when she slapped a woman constable on-duty.

A video shared by News Agency ANI shows Himachal MLA Asha Kumari slapping a police constable who was in security duty outside the venue of Rahul Gandhi’s review meeting in Shimla.

However, it was not like any other usual incident of politicians assaulting police personnel and this time Asha Kumari messed up with a wrong lady who slapped her right back on the face.

Miffed Congress MLA didn’t stop here and again tried to hit the lady constable but by then other people around interfered and stopped the slap-fest getting uglier.

According to the ANI, Asha was trying to forcefully enter the party headquarters in Shimla where Rahul Gandhi was holding a review meeting to assess the Congress's poll performance, but police denied her entry.

The story was not over yet, and Asha Kumari feels the women constable should have used restrain as she was of her mother’s age.

However, she also apologized for losing her temper.

“She (woman constable) abused me and pushed me, she should have shown restrain, I am her mother's age, but yes I agree I should not have lost my temper. I apologize,” the Congress MLA said.
