Asha Kumari, a Congress MLA from Dalhousie in Himachal Pradesh and niece of former chief minister Virbhadra Singh had slapped a lady constable. Chamba’s royal family scion Asha Kumari apologised for her actions. She also said, “Our national president says such things should not happen.” This somehow showed how the youthful leader’s Congress has been changing into a sorry or apologetic party.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi appeared to have adopted Gandhiji’s words of surrender, obedience and compliance in exactness. That’s why he straight out condemned the slap by Asha Kumari. He was attending the party meeting at Shimla in Himachal Pradesh. He spoke from the podium too. The more the party loses its political base, the more humble he turns out to be.
It is also considered to be a part of our good and enriched traditions.
Himachal DGP said that a complaint had been made and the matter was being looked into.
He was there to take part in review meeting over the party’s devastation in the state where once the Congress party ruled with all its strength. As he was playing a guessing game, the confrontation between the lady leader and the lady police resulted in both slapping each other. The woman who slapped first ended up being slapped herself.
