  • Facing backlash Congress MLA Asha Kumari apologises for slapping woman constable

A video involving former minister and Congress MLA from Dalhousie, Asha Kumari allegedly slapping a woman constable, amid jostling by Congress workers has gone viral on social media. The "slapgate" happened even as Congress president Rahul Gandhi had reached the office to take stock of the party's defeat in the recent assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh.

Kumari and former ministers Dhani Ram Shandil and Mukesh Agnihotri got down from their vehicles outside the office and were stopped at the main gate by the constables on security duty. "She (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".

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. No one has a right to raise a hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture. "I apologise", she told reporters.
