A Congress MLA from Himachal Pradesh got a tit-for-tat response from a lady constable in Shimla on Friday.

Islamic State claims responsibility for deadly attacks in Kabul
Taliban forces fighting US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan have denied any involvement in the attack. Bass said the incident "once again demonstrates the depravity of those who seek to undermine peace and stability in Afghanistan".

The 62-year-old leader entered into a heated argument with one of the women constables after she was allegedly pushed. "I will not tolerate indiscipline in the party", said Gandhi at a Congress party meeting later.

Complainant further alleged that she was restrained from moving ahead and pushed back and manhandled. In retaliation, the constable also slapped the MLA. In a matter of seconds, Kumari was left bewildered when the said lady constable retaliated, slapping the veteran Congress legislator in return. No one has a right to raise a hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture.

Asha Kumari, an MLA from Dalhousie, was reportedly denied entry to the venue where Congress president Rahul Gandhi was holding a review meeting. Earlier, a video went viral in which Asha Kumari slapped a woman cop who reverted to her with another slap.
