Congress MLA Asha Kumari should have known assaulting government servant on duty punishable offence. Well done constable for hitting back the arrogant leader. Hope leaders learn virtues of modesty & humility. We live in democracy in which all are equal & leaders aren’t above law

Hightime our men and women in uniform stood for self-respect. The lady MLA from @INCIndia should be booked for assaulting a police woman on duty and obstructing a public servant from discharging her duties. Let’s see if @OfficeOfRG will suspend Asha Kumari for such indiscipline. https://t.co/shWxEZNm9s

With the common citizen getting exponentially aware, such arrogance of politicians is the one thing that political parties need to check. This seems to be just another incident where the Congress party has displayed its elitism.
