PTI leader Hammad Azhar on Saturday became the centre of attention for the second consecutive day when he was seen "snatching" the microphone from fellow party member Faisal Javed Khan during the party’s long march at Ferozewala.
In a video that has gone viral, Hammad can be seen requesting Faisal to hand over the microphone to him atop party chief Imran Khan’s container. However, Faisal responds by signalling Hammad to wait.

PTI chief Imran can also be seen in the video wearing sunglasses and looking at the participants of the long march.
Hammad again asks Faisal to hand over the microphone but the request is again denied as the latter says something to Imran.

Hammad, for the third time, seeks Faisal's attention but this time he also snatches the microphone and starts talking to the long march participants.
Many on Twitter noticed the incident with a few criticising while others coming to the defence of both PTI leaders.
"Faisal Javed Khan sometimes you need to leave the mic as well," said Kashaf Noor.

Matloob Hassan said that Faisal Javed treats the mic as his "girlfriend". "He should respect that there are other senior party leaders besides him as well," he added.

A day earlier another video had emerged on social media in which Hammad Azhar and another senior party leader Asad Umar could be seen having a "heated conversation".
In the viral video, Umar can be seen having a "heated" discussion with Azhar. Party chairman Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi can also be seen at the back.

The video went viral on social media and gave rise to speculations about a possible rift between the top leadership of PTI. However, Asad later cleared the air of a possible dispute with his clarification.
کل کے لاہور کا اپنے کپتان کے ساتھ اظہار یکجہتی اور حقیقی آزادی کا عزم دیکھ کر یہ گھبرا گئے ہیں. میرا ایک کلپ چلا رہے ہیں کے اختلافات ہو گئے. اللہ کے بندوں اس وقت مجھے غصہ اس بات پر تھا کے جنریٹر خراب ہو گیا تھا اور دوسرا آنے میں دیر ہو رہی تھی 😊 #حقیقی_آزادی_مارچ

“They are shocked to see yesterday's Lahore show solidarity with their captain [Imran Khan] and determination for real freedom. There is a clip circulating about possible differences. I was only angry because the generator had broken down and the second one was taking long to arrive,” he said on Twitter.
