KARACHI, (MANEND NEWS): The Sindh Assembly turned into a
battleground on Tuesday after lawmakers belonging to the Pakistan
Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) got into a
physical brawl over a disgruntled PTI MPA, eventually 'taken into
custody' from the assembly premises by fellow party lawmakers.
After a brief fight on the floor of the house, the PTI members managed
to whisk away Karim Bux Gabol – the PTI MPA who a day earlier
announced he won't be voting for his party in the upper house
elections, scheduled to be held today (Wednesday).
Gabol – who was elected from the PS-100 Karachi East-II constituency
in the 2018 general elections – in a video released on Monday claimed
that his party has given Senate tickets to candidates in exchange for
money, adding that the Constitution of the country allows him to vote
for any candidate.The situation in the assembly turned ugly when Gabol was approached
by fellow PTI MPAs including Khurrum Sher Zaman, Saeed Afridi and
Bilal Ghaffar even before he had taken his seat, and asked him to
come with them.
