"I am sorry for the incident". In a matter of seconds, Kumari was left bewildered when the said lady constable retaliated, slapping the veteran Congress legislator in return. Not ready to hold back, the constable slapped her back and this was caught on camera by bystanders.

A bystander recorded the video of the incident in which Kumari can be seen slapping the lady constable and then being slapped back. She was allegedly denied entry by the police in Rahul Gandhi's review meeting in Shimla, reports ANI. "I am not happy at it". No one has a right to raise hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture.

She said: "I was pushed, manhandled, threatened with dire consequences. I will not tolerate indiscipline in the party", said Gandhi at a Congress party meeting later.

Kumari won from the Dalhousie seat in the recent Himachal Pradesh election. She had defeated Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) DS Thakur. He met party legislators, party candidates and district presidents, to discuss what went wrong in the elections. A miffed Rahul told party leaders that he did not appreciate such behaviour.

Rahul is in Shimla on Friday to review the party's performance in the recently held assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh. Congress had faced a massive loss after it was able to get only 21 seats in the 68-member assembly.

Kumari, who had managed to retain her Dalhousie seat in the polls despite the BJP wave in the hill state, was apparently late for the meeting.
