LAHORE - National Assembly Speaker and Acting President Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq who on Tuesday refused to take the protocol of the president, had to face an awkward situation at the Lahore Airport on Wednesday night when he pushed past the waiting PML-N workers and the media men on his arrival here. As the workers pushed in to get close to the acting president, they had a scuffle with the security men. They also gave Sardar Sadiq a hard push during the brawl, though not intentionally. The acting president may now review his decision of rejecting president’s protocol after this incident.
