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.

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.
