Pakistan’s minister for privatisation Daniyal Aziz was slapped by a senior leader of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf during a TV talk show.

A 36-second clip posted on Geo News website showed Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Naeemul Haque and Aziz mudslinging each other’s party in the Aapas Ki Baat programme yesterday.

Then all of a sudden Aziz, in an aggressive tone, addressed Haque and said: “Am I afraid of you… afraid of thieves like you”. Haque lost his temper when Aziz called him a “thief”.

Aziz kept his cool after being slapped and just said: “How dare you slap me?” At this Haque retorted: “How dare you call me a thief?”
