Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Friday, while commenting on a new damning audio leak allegedly featuring Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and deposed premier Imran Khan, said that it had “totally busted the narrative” whereby the incumbent government was a “product of conspiracy”. “Imran Niazi wasted five months of the nation by concocting lies and propaganda about his successor government, however, his own audio leaks exposed his fraudulence,” said PM Shehbaz in his address at the foundation-stone laying ceremony of Bara Kahu Bypass project. Imran Khan “called the politicians as traitors, however, in reality, it was he who betrayed the nation”, added the PM “Imran’s lies about an ‘imported government’ are in fact a conspiracy against the entire nation,” he said, stressing the need for people to understand the reality. Shehbaz, who recently represented the country at the forums of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), said the leaders of some friendly countries during the sideline meetings conveyed to him their annoyance over the irresponsible foreign policy of Imran’s government. Expressing his commitment to “rebuild” and develop the country, the PM said his government was steadfast in dealing with the immense challenges after the previous government pushed the country to the brink of economic collapse. PM Shehbaz was briefed on the occasion about the modalities and execution of the Bahara Kahu project.
