The audio leak comes days after Imran Khan suddenly ended his anti-government kick.( Train)
Islamabad A blurted audio recording of an alleged telephonic discussion between former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and real estate mogul Malik Riaz Hussain has surfaced, in which Riaz was heard as saying that ousted high Minister Imran Khan wanted to reach out to Zardari for conciliation addresses ahead of the no- trust vote in Parliament last month.
The 32-alternate audio recording, believed to be the voices of Zardari and Riaz independently, has gone viral on social media, and comes days after Khan suddenly ended hisanti-government sit- in amid enterprise that there was a deal struck between the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the Pakistan Army.
In the purported discussion, the date of which can not be ascertained, Riaz could be heard telling Zardari that Khan was transferring him dispatches, the Dawn review reported.
“ Moment, he( Imran Khan) has transferred too numerous dispatches, ” the voice believed to be of Riaz told the former chairman, who in response says “ It’s insolvable now. ” “ It’s okay. I just wanted to bring this into your notice, ” the Dawn report said, quoting Riaz’s alleged voice.
While the PTI incontinently dismissed the audio as “ fake, ” members of Zardari’s party, the Pakistan Peoples Party( PPP) said it” sounded genuine,” the report said.
” A business personality and ananti-Imran Khan politician are having a discussion which is being attributed to Imran Khan. Still, the discussion has nothing to do with reality,” The Express Tribune review quoted PTI leader Shahbaz Gill as saying.
Khan, who was ousted from power last month through a no- trust vote, had supposedly lost the support of the Army after he refused to plump the appointment of the ISI asset agency chief last time.
He has been claiming that the no- trust stir against him was the result of a “ foreign conspiracy ” because his independent foreign policy and finances were being conducted from abroad to oust him from power.
He has named the US as the country behind the conspiracy, a charge denied by Washington.
Khan on Friday dismissed reports that he struck a deal with the Pakistan Army to end his massive “ Azadi rally ” demanding fresh general choices, asserting that he’d decided to end his march to avoid bloodshed.
“ I had observed wrathfulness among the people against the police after what they did to stop the march, and there was a fear that if we continued to march as blazoned, the country would plunge into chaos and lawlessness, ” Khan said.
“ Don’t suppose it was our weakness and do not suppose that a deal was made. I’m hearing strange effects that a deal was made with the establishment. I didn’t make a deal with anyone, ” he said, pertaining to the reported part of the important military establishment in ending the rally by PTI activists.
He advised that he’d return to the Pakistani capital with the entire nation if the” imported government” failed to advertise fresh general choices within the six- day deadline, egging Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to retort back that his” dictation will not work” and Parliament would decide the date for pates.
Last week, Khan had asked his sympathizers to march peacefully to Islamabad on May 25 to press for the dissolution of the National Assembly and fresh choices in the country.
The 69- time-old cricketer- turned- politician, still, claimed that he’d advertise a massive rally again if early choices aren’t ordered by the government.
He emphasized that his party would not deal with or accept the “ imported government ” headed by Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif. read more
