Asha Kumari is the All India Congress Committee secretary and AICC in-charge of Punjab. After considerable backlash, she also took to Twitter and clarified the situation calling it an act of self-defence. The review meet headed by Rahul Gandhi was called in to discuss the reasons for the defeat in the state. Sources said that since Rahul - an SPG protectee - had already begun the meeting, the police officials posted outside the Congress office in Shimla - the venue of the review meet - were directed to not allow anyone else in.

During a day-long visit to Shimla, the Congress President will review the party's performance in the recently-held Himachal Pradesh assembly election.

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.
