These thugs kept chanting slogans to make other members of the assembly a warning sign.

The legal notice also said that the Deputy Speaker had flagrantly violated Article(s) 4, 5 and 63-A, of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on the day of election.

In addition, the Deputy Speaker supported the PML-N candidate and illegally blocked the lobby for the other candidate through police and goons and deprived them of the right to vote, which is clear violation of the orders of the Lahore High Court.
