"So far I have not made any complaints", she said. "The lady constable misbehaved with me, abused me and nearly beat me up, but I should not have lost my calm. I apologize", Asha Kumari said to ANI.

The MLA was allegedly infuriated after she was denied by police officials to enter a review meeting chaired by Congress President Rahul Gandhi. A senior Congress leader told TOI that after seeing the video, Rahul expressed his displeasure and told Kumari that she should not have hit the cop. "I am not happy at it". This is no way. No one has a right to raise the hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture. The meeting is slated at Rajiv Bhawan, the party's headquarters in Shimla.

Following this, she got agitated and to the shock of everyone slapped the lady constable. Not ready to hold back, the constable slapped her back and this was caught on camera by bystanders.

The matter was highlighted after the woman constable slapped Kumari back in a fit of rage. She holds the office of All India Congress Committee secretary and, additionally, is AICC in-charge of Punjab.

He will meet party legislators, defeated party candidates and district presidents, and discuss with them the reasons for their defeat. The BJP has bagged 44 seats in the 68-seat Assembly to form the government in the state.

Kumari, who had managed to retain her Dalhousie seat in the polls despite the BJP wave in the hill state, was apparently late for the meeting.
