Kangana Ranaut, the BJP MP-elect from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi, was slapped by CISF constable Kulwinder Kaur during security check.

Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut reacted on Friday to actor-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut being slapped by a female CISF constable at Chandigarh airport on Thursday. Historically, the erstwhile Shiv Sena was at loggerheads with Ranaut for her comments against the party.

“Some people give votes and some give slaps. I don’t know what has happened actually… If the constable has said that her mother was also sitting, then it is true. If her mother was there in the farmer’s agitation and someone said anything against it, then it would create anger,” Raut told reporters at a briefing.

If her mother was there in the farmer’s agitation and someone said anything against it, then it would create anger.”

“But if PM Modi says that there should be the rule of law, then it should not be taken into hands… The people in the farmer’s agitation were sons and daughters of India. If someone insults Bharat Mata and someone is offended by it, then it is something to think about. I have sympathy for Kangana. She is an MP now. An MP should not be attacked but the farmers should also be respected,” Raut added.

Ranaut, the BJP MP-elect from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh, was slapped by CISF constable Kulwinder Kaur while going through security checks on Thursday.

“I’m safe.” I’m perfectly fine. The incident occurred during the security check. After I finished the security check, a female CISF constable waited for me to pass through the cabin. Later, she approached from the side, hit me in the face, and began abusing me,” Ranaut wrote in a post on social media .

The CISF constable said that her mother was among the farmers holding a sit-in protest against the farm laws, which now have been repealed.

“She stated that the farmers are sitting there for ₹ 100. Will she go sit there? My mother was sitting there protesting when she made this statement,” she said in a viral video following the incident. The CISF jumped into action, suspending the constable and stating that an investigation is underway.

Raut said that if the CISF woman constable’ mother was there in the farmer’s agitation and Kangana Ranaut said anything against it; then it would naturally arouse ‘anger’. “ Some people give votes and some give slaps. I don’t know what has happened actually… If the constable has said that her mother was also sitting, then it is true. If her mother was there in the farmer’s agitation and someone said anything against it, then it would create anger,” ANI quoted Sanjay Raut.

“But if PM Modi says that there should be the rule of law, then it should not be taken into hands… The people in the farmer’s agitation were sons and daughters of India. If someone insults Bharat Mata and someone is offended by it, then it is something to think about,” he added.

Raut appealed to the public to respect the newly elected Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi, saying, “I have sympathy for Kangana. She is an MP now. An MP should not be attacked, but the farmers should also be respected.”

The 35-year-old Kulwinder Kaur from Sultanpur Lodhi in Punjab posted at Chandigarh Airport for the last two years claimed that the Mandi MP made a derogatory remark during a farmers’ protest.

The new-elected BJP MP was allegedly assaulted by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) woman constable during a security check at the Chandigarh airport on Thursday.

A scuffle had occurred at the security check between the actor-turned-politician and the CISF personnel when the former, reportedly, refused to put her phone in the tray.

An inquiry committee comprising senior CISF officials has been set up to conduct a further investigation. According to officials, the constable has been suspended and an FIR has been lodged against her.
