Himachal Congress MLA slaps lady constable, gets a tighter one in return

Congress MLA Asha Kumari slaps woman police constable she slaps her back

Congress MLA from Dalhousie and All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary Asha Kumari on Friday courted a controversy after she slapped a woman constable outside the party office in Shimla.

The MLA later apologised, saying "the lady constable misbehaved, abused me and nearly beat me, but I should not have lost my calm". On this, Asha Kumari said that she was abused by the constable and she was compelled to use her hands.

In a spontaneous reaction, the constable too slapped Asha, which left the MLA perturbed.

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. Himachal DGP Somesh Goyal said that a complaint was received from the lady constable and the matter was being looked into after which appropriate action would be taken. She, ANI reported, was trying to gain entry to a meeting being held by Congress president Rahul Gandhi to review the grand old party's recent Himachal Pradesh election loss.

"I am not happy with it".

In her complaint, the MLA also stated that she could not file the complaint on Friday itself as she had to attend an important meeting. He met party legislators, party candidates and district presidents, to discuss what went wrong in the elections.

Gandhi is here on a day-long visit to Shimla to take feedback from party workers and legislators on reasons for the party's defeat in the assembly polls held on November 9.

The Congress managed to bag just 21 seats, while the BJP won 44 seats in the 68-member assembly.
