Congress MLA slaps constable, slapped back

Posted December 31, 2017

"She (the lady police constable) abused me and pushed me, she should have shown restrain". The constable on the other side, defended herself, saying that she was just performing her duty and Asha was the one who started slapping her first and the action she took was in self defense. "I apologize", the Congress MLA said.

In a shocking video that is doing round on social media, a Congress MLA from Dalhousie Asha Kumari got into an altercation with a female police constable.

The MLA was allegedly infuriated after she was denied by police officials to enter a review meeting chaired by Congress President Rahul Gandhi. "I am not happy at it". After considerable backlash, she also took to Twitter and clarified the situation calling it an act of self-defence. "So far I have not made any complaints", she said. The meeting is slated at Rajiv Bhawan, the party's headquarters in Shimla.

The matter was highlighted after the woman constable slapped Kumari back in a fit of rage.

In Shimla, Rahul met party legislators and district presidents and discussed what went wrong in the elections.

During a day-long visit to Shimla, the Congress President will review the party's performance in the recently-held Himachal Pradesh assembly election. A miffed Rahul told party leaders that he did not appreciate such behaviour. The BJP had won 44 seats in the hill state to oust Congress' Virbhadra singh from the chief minister's chair and his party from the government.
