ISLAMABAD: Legislators of Pakistan Peoples Party in National Assembly have demanded a prompt response from the information minister over attacks on media workers while covering Nawaz Sharif's ongoing 'homecoming' rally.

The GT Road rally remained largely peaceful, however, the supporters and activists of Pakistan Muslim League?Nawaz reportedly assaulted the crew of two local TV stations that had been critical of him during the Supreme Court proceedings, a police official Hafeez Khan informed.

The calling attention notice submitted to the National Assembly Secretariat and signed by PPP legislators Shahida Rehmani, Shazia Marri, Aijaz Hussain Jakhrani, Imran Zafar Leghari, Dr Nafisha Shah, Aijaz Hussain Jakhrani and Mohammad Ayaz Soomro said: ?We the undersigned would like to draw the attention of the Minister for Information towards the repeated incidents of brutal attacks on media persons?.. Such incidents are highly condemnable and totally unacceptable.?

The statement concluded: ?It?s a serious matter which warrants prompt response from the Minister on the floor of the House immediately?.

On Wednesday, Nawaz, the chief of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, set out from Punjab House, Islamabad after deciding to go home to Lahore via the GT Road. 

Nawaz began the second leg of his 'homecoming rally' earlier after leaving in his cavalcade from Punjab House, Rawalpindi.
