“First Naeem said ‘Mr. King’ is coming here, please provide him a space. And then he manhandled me,” said the PAT leader.
Gandapur said mutual respect was vital among political partners. He said Naeemul Haq first shoved him and used language that cannot be spoken on-air.
“I asked him to apologize or this matter will drag further,” he told.
