The MLA later apologised, saying "the lady constable misbehaved, abused me and nearly beat me, but I should not have lost my calm".
Kumari has lodged a complaint against the woman constable, requesting an FIR in this regard.
Blaming the PCC for mismanagement at the party's office gate, Kumari added, "I can only blame myself for the unsavoury incident". All of a sudden, the MLA lost her cool and slapped the constable.

Several allies are also concerned as the system can not be integrated into NATO's existing military architecture. Under an accord signed in Ankara on Friday, the first delivery is planned for March 2020.
Asha Kumari, Dalhousie legislator and in charge of Punjab, was allegedly trying to force her way inside the Congress office at Circular Road to attend a review meeting held by party chief Rahul Gandhi to assess its performance in the recently held assembly elections in the hill state. "I am not happy at it". No one has a right to raise a hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture. The meeting is slated at Rajiv Bhawan, the party's headquarters in Shimla.
In a spontaneous reaction, the constable too slapped Asha, which left the MLA perturbed. The review meet headed by Rahul Gandhi was called in to discuss the reasons for the defeat in the state.
Party leaders and workers started jostling to enter the office soon after Gandhi went inside the building amid a tight security at the Congress office. Congress had faced a massive loss after it was able to get only 21 seats in the 68-member assembly.
The MLA from Dalhousie Asha Kumari was not available for comments.
