ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf announced social boycott of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Javed Latif, saying that no party representative will participate in any talk show where Latif will be invited.
It is to be mentioned here that on Thursday a scuffle broke out between Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf legislator Murad Saeed and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Mian Javed Latif.
On Friday PTI chief Imran Khan ordered representatives of his party not to appear on any TV shows where Latif is invited.
The PTI chairman further ordered his party “members and leaders” from attending “any public forum event where Javed Latif is invited.”
“No PTI rep will go on any TV chat show where Jawed Latif is invited. In any civilised country he would be banned from all public forums,” the PTI chief tweeted.
A scuffle broke out between Latif and Saeed at the main entrance to the Parliament House after a session of the National Assembly on Thursday.
Footage of the incident showed PTI MNA Murad Saeed attempting to punch and slap PML-N MNA Javed Latif while the latter was leaving the Parliament House.
When asked about the reasons behind the scuffle, Saeed claimed that the PML-N parliamentarian had called his leader [Imran Khan] a traitor which elicited a strong reaction from him in protest.
Hours after the scuffle broke out, Khan defended Saeed by accusing Latif of disrespecting female members of Saeed’s family.
In his multiple tweets later in the day, the PTI chief also referred to past events to prove his point against the PML-N.
