ISLAMABAD – The political rivalry between two major parties of Pakistan turned nasty Tuesday after PTI’s central spokesman Naeem-ul-Haq slapped PML-N’s Daniyal Aziz for uttering indecent remarks during a current affairs talk show.
The brawl erupted when Aziz, the minister for Privatisation, called Haq a ‘thief’ during the recording of Geo News’ programme ‘Aapas Ki Baat’.
Aziz’s inappropriate remarks fumed Haq, which led to a heated exchange between the two figures.
The show host, Muneeb Farooq, however, managed to defuse the tense situation following the fight.
