LAHORE: PTI Chairman Imran Khan Monday claimed that another audio leak of PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz would come to the fore after back-to-back leaks of the ruling coalition leaders.
Speaking during an event, the former prime minister said that in the audio that will be leaked in the coming days, Maryam could be heard telling her father, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, that Imran will soon be disqualified in the Toshakhana reference.
“If they had a little shame, they would have resigned after their audio leaks. However, since they — Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his ministers — are not resigning, we will have to force them out,” the PTI chairman said.
Khan’s claim came hours after PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry demanded the government launch a probe into audio leaks from the Prime Minister’s House.
Three audios have been leaked in the last week — with PM Shehbaz and Maryam being at the centre of the controversy.
The latest leaked audio that had gone viral on social media — allegedly featuring PM Shehbaz, Rana Sanaullah, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and others — contains a discussion regarding PTI’s resignations.
Before that, another leaked audio had gone viral on social media — allegedly featuring PM Shehbaz — containing a discussion regarding PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz asking for a power plant from India to be imported for her son-in-law.
Apart from that, Maryam’s alleged audio conversation was leaked in which she can be heard advising the PM to jack up the fuel prices.
Maryam, who had been opposing a hike in fuel prices during her media appearances, can be heard suggesting PM Shehbaz increase fuel prices. She also complained about Finance Minister Miftah Ismail.
