Lahore: The leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz have expressed commitment to take the issue of audio leaks and cipher to its logical conclusion as it has raised questions on the prestige and honour of country.
Addressing a news conference along with other senior party leaders in Lahore on Saturday, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said that Imran Khan’s divisive and filthy narrative has been exposed in a recent audio leak and cipher is not a conspiracy.
Terming cipher as a secret document and the property of Prime Minister office, he said that PTI Chief is responsible for this serious security breach.
Expressing displeasure over the poor performance of PTI in last four years, Ishaq Dar lamented that all the macroeconomic indicators of Pakistan showed desperate performance and country ranked as below to 50th economy worldwide in 2034.
He further pledged to steer the country out of the mammoth challenges as Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is making his best efforts to tackle the challenges in an effective manner.
He said that due to the prudent steps taken by the coalition government, appreciation of rupee is being witnessed against dollar. Resultantly, a significant reduction of country’s loan has been observed.
Ishaq Dar expressed the resolve to provide maximum relief to the general public in coming weeks.
Speaking on the occasion, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif said that PML-N will never compromise on the issue of national security.
She said PTI Chief Imran Khan committed forgery with the sensitive document and he should apologize to the nation.
She said that Imran Khan tarnished the image of country in the world and ruined the diplomatic ties with other states.
Maryam Nawaz said PTI Chief received billions of rupees from anti state elements under the banner of foreign funding.
She further said that former Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will come to Pakistan and lead the party.
Responding to a question, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar warned that strict action will be taken against the elements involved deliberately in the depreciation of rupee.
To a question over the cipher issue, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that Federal Cabinet has decided to raise the issue of audio leaks in the Parliament and action will be taken against PTI Chief after discussion in the Parliament.
Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarrar, Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Pervez Rashid were also present on this occasion.
