November 7, 2022 03:51 PM
The pressure and tensions of the days-long sit-in demonstrations by the PTI workers burst into open on Monday when the party activists came to blows during a protest held at Murree Road in Rawalpindi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
This also resulted in a tiff between PTI leader Fayyazul Hassan Chohan and a PTI worker, triggering the former Punjab minister to slap the protester.
Realizing his blunger, Fayyaz immediately tried to calm down the situation, telling the activist “I slap you because I consider you as my child.”
He further said the petrol which was being sprinkled on tyres during the protest demo also soaked workers’ clothes. “That’s why I just cautioned you,” he added.
The worker, Baqar Khan, hit back at the PTI leader, rejecting his notion and said “You did not slap as I am your child, rather it was the result of the rage you harboured against me.”
Later the workers also scuffled during a press conference.
