OneIndia found the claim to be misleading. This is a video from a Congress-JD(S) election rally in Bengaluru. The incident took place in 2019. None have reported that the person she slapped was a BJP worker.

This incident has nothing to do with Sundar's entry into the BJP. The incident occurred on April 12 2019. Several media outlets have reported this news in 2019. The reports say that the man tried to misbehave with her. She was conducting a roadshow during the election campaign in Karnataka, when the incident took place.

The reports say that the man was warned and then was let off. No FIR was registered against the man either. None of the report said that the man was either a Congress or BJP worker. However a report in The Week says that the man in question is allegedly a Congress worker.
