Congress MLA Asha Kumari slaps a woman constable and gets slapped back and after that Asha slapped constable again. So Asha managed to slap 2 times & Constable only 1 time. It is a Moral Victory of Congress. Asha is also happy that she got a tight congress symbol on her face.— Anshul Saxena (@AskAnshul) December 29, 2017
Later, Asha Kumari apologized for her misconduct after she was extensively trolled on Facebook and Twitter.
