The uproar started when MPA Ali Haider Niazi criticised the opposition, calling them traitors. He demanded that if South Punjab is being made a province then the same should also be done with Thal.
Niazi claimed that a female MPA struck him from behind, after which he proceeded to exchange harsh words with PPP MPA Fauzia Behram.
It is unclear who assaulted him.
Harsh words were exchanged between the members of PML-N and PPP while the Assembly speaker postponed the session for an hour
