ISLAMABAD: A PTI worker on Tuesday scuffled with their dissident lawmaker Noor Alam Khan at a private hotel.

Noor Alam was having iftar at the private hotel with PPP leaders Nadeem Afzal Chan, Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, and Faisal Karim Kundi when the incident occurred.

According to eyewitnesses, a PTI worker abused the MNA in Pashto and was told by Khan not to do so as it was a “family event”.

Onlookers further said that despite the MNA’s appeal to maintain decorum, the PTI worker continued to hurl abuses at the lawmaker.

The eyewitness said that when the PTI worker did not stop hurling abuses, Noor lost his cool and punched him. This led to a scuffle between the two. They added that PPP leaders Khokhar and Kundi also beat up the PTI worker.

Noor Alam was among the 20 dissident MNAs who had decided to support the Opposition in its no-confidence motion against their party leader Imran Khan.

The PTI has filed a reference against the dissident MNAs under Article 63(A). However, Noor Alam and the other dissident MNAs did not cast their vote against Imran Khan in the no-trust motion as the Opposition no longer required the numbers with the MQM-P flipping in its favour. 

Noor Alam, a former PPP member had joined the PTI ahead of the last elections, after joining the Imran Khan-led party he won the NA-27 (Peshawar-I) seat in the 2018 General Elections. 

This was not the first time that Noor Alam came under fire for his decision to go against Imran Khan. On March 19, two people — reportedly belonging to the PTI — threatened him for showing reservations against the PTI chief ahead of the voting on the no-confidence motion.

In a viral video, the two men could be seen abusing and threatening the PTI’s dissident lawmaker at a hotel in Islamabad. Sources privacy to the matter had said that the two men were the leaders of the PTI’s Canada chapter — who came to Islamabad to attend the overseas convention.
