Cong MLA v/s woman constable play ‘slap saga’; party leader apologize; heres more on what happened
It all happened in a span of few hours.
The Congress MLA and an influential party leader Asha Kumari was stuck as she moved to meet Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in Himachal for review of poll debacle.
She for some reason lost her temper and slapped the near standing woman constable but whats surprising is that the woman constable slapped her right back then and there on the spot.
It need be mentioned that Asha Kumari hails from royalty and politically very senior and while her slapping the constable could not be justified, the unthinkable happened when constable did not think twice before letting her hand lose on five times MLA.
The video of the slap-saga too went viral on social media and it was only when party president Rahul Gandhi snubbed her that she tendered an apology to the woman constable.
Asha Kumari said, “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 apologise,”.
Rahul Gandhi disapproved the MLA’s action of slapping the woman police constable and added that no indiscipline in the party would be tolerated.
Earlier in the day, a video of the Congress MLA hitting the woman constable went viral. Kumari allegedly slapped the constable as she was stopped by the police from entering party president Rahul Gandhi’s review meeting in Shimla.
The Congress meeting was to assess the party workers’ performance and review the loss of the party in the recently concluded Himachal Pradesh elections.
Asha Kumari is the All India Congress Committee secretary and AICC in-charge of Punjab and also a member of the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly from Dalhousie. >
