Punjab Assembly hall turned into a battleground on Saturday as the PTI members manhandle Deputy Speaker Dost Mohammad Mazari.
Today’s session is being convened to elect the new chief minister.
The PTI lawmakers caused a ruckus inside the assembly hall. They had brought “lotas” to the house.
As reported, the PTI lawmakers threw “lotas” at Deputy Speaker Mazari, attacked him, and pulled his hair despite the presence of security guards.
PTI MNAs started chanting “lota, lota” (turncoats) as they lashed out at dissident PTI MPAs for parting ways with the party and decided to support the Opposition.
The video clips of the most embracing moment in the history of Pakistan politics are now doing rounds on social media.
