The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) was jolted by an "earthquake" on Wednesday in Punjab where it has submitted a no-confidence motion against its own deputy speaker of the provincial assembly, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Wednesday submitted a no-confidence motion against Punjab Assembly Speaker and PTI candidate for chief minister slot Pervaiz Elahi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

PML-N delegation comprising of Khawaja Salman Rafique, Samiullah Khan, Khalik Zahir Sindhu and Maulana Pir Ashraf Rasool visited Punjab Assembly Secretariat and filed the no-trust motion with the assembly secretary.

The PTI's motion against Deputy Speaker Sardar Dost Muhammad Mazari was submitted in the office of the Assembly Secretary after which the deputy speaker cannot summon the assembly session. 

A big rift appeared in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) after the party brought a no-confidence motion against its own Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari.

However, Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Mazari asserted that he still could chair the session of the assembly despite a no-confidence motion against him.

Earlier, there was a confusion about convening of the Punjab Assembly session as the assembly secretariat was unaware of the deputy speaker’s orders of convening the assembly session today.

PA turns into fortress

Steps have been taken at the Punjab Assembly building to deal with any emergency situation.

Work was under way to lay barbed wire around the main gates.

The entry of media in the Punjab Assembly has also been banned and the security people did not allow journalists to enter the building.
