Asha Kumari is the Punjab in-charge of the AICC and won the recently held Himachal Assembly elections from her home seat Dalhousie.

Miffed Congress MLA didn't stop here and again tried to hit the lady constable but by then other people around interfered and stopped the slap-fest getting uglier.

While the Congress President has condemned Kumari's act in Shimla, the latter apologised for her action and said, "She (police constable) abused me and pushed me, she should have shown restraint". A Large number of Congress workers assembled outside the party office to make their voices heard in front of the Gandhi scion. However, she said the constable pushed her and abused her. No one has a right to raise a hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture.
