New Delhi: Newly-elected Himachal Pradesh MLA Asha Kumari was found slapping a woman constable in Shimla. To add to the ignominy, and her surprise, the constable returned the favour with equal fervour.
Asha Kumari, Congress MLA from Dalhousie, was trying to find her way into Congress' review meeting chaired by Rahul Gandhi, but was denied entry. It is then that she is seen slapping a woman constable, which was captured on camera. The constable too is seen slapping her back within no time. Asha Kumari was later allowed to enter the Congress office after the fracas.
While explaining the circumstances in a Twitter post, Asha Kumari, the niece of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, alleged that the 'constable on duty denied entry in my own party’s programme despite reading the pass' and also used unparliamentary language.
The MLA later expressed regret and apologised for her conduct. "The woman constable abused me and pushed me, she should have shown restraint, I am her mother's age, but yes I agree I should not have lost my temper. I apologise," said Asha Kumari. She denied seeking any action against the Policewoman. “So far, I have not made any complaints,” she said.
Rahul Gandhi even referred to the slapping incident without naming anyone. “Raising hand on anyone is against Congress culture. One should leave this kind of things for the opposition,” Gandhi said.
