ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmaker Murad Saeed indulged in a scuffle with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) at the parliament lobby following their heated arguments earlier during the assembly proceedings, ARY News reported.
The confrontation began during the assembly session when PML-N’s Javed Latif hit out at PTI chief Imran Khan for his remarks against the foreign players in PSL final. He also reportedly called Khan a traitor. Murad Saeed reacted strongly to the accusations, stirring up ruckus.
The PML-N lawmaker, during his speech in the House, said Imran had earlier suggested to hold a cricket match in Lahore and later called the same government move ‘madness’.

He went to say that Khan used inappropriate language for foreign cricketers who had arrived in Lahore to take part in the PSL final. “PTI members must infuse some sense in their leader,” said Latif in his address.
The remarks from the PML-N lawmaker stirred hornet’s nest among the PTI benches and they started protest. Murad Saeed expressed his resentment and said he should be allowed to speak after the deputy speaker asked him to take his seat and turned off his mic.
Talking to media after the incident, PML-N’s Talal Chaudhary said the PTI was not practising its politics in a respectable manner.
He alleged that members of the PTI “attack” the assembly when it’s underway and later take the same approach outside it.
