It was a case of tit-for-tat for Congress MLA Asha Kumar of Himachal Pradesh. When she was denied entry into the meeting hall in Simla, where Congress President Rahul Gandhi was addressing the party workers, an angry Asha Kumari slapped a woman constable. But, the constable paid back in the same coin by slapping the MLA immediately.
Asha Kumari was livid at the constable's reaction and entered into a wordy duel with her. However, the Congress workers took her aside and pacified her. Rahul Gandhi is on a tour of Himachal Pradesh on Friday, where he would address the party workers in the afternoon.
After slapping the woman cop in haste, Congress MLA Asha Kumari repented in leisure. She expressed her apologies for slapping the woman cop. She said she should not have done what she did. "But, the way the woman constable behaved irked me. I am her mother's age. I should not have lost my cool," she said.
