Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that the leaked audio tape has revealed the hypocrisy and double standards of Imran Khan who, as opposed to his claims, wanted NRO for himself and his beleaguered government, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Taking to his Twitter handle, Prime Minister Shehbaz tweeted on Sunday: “The audio tape that surfaced recently exposes Imran Khan’s hypocrisy & double standards. Contrary to his claims, he sought NRO to save himself & his govt. The fake story of foreign conspiracy was manufactured after all his efforts failed. His lies stand exposed.”

An audio recording of an alleged telephonic conversation between PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari and property tycoon Malik Riaz was widely reported by the electronic media and shared on social media on Saturday, where the latter could be heard telling Mr Zardari that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was desperate for a “patch-up” with him.

On the other hand, taking swipe at Imran Khan’s alleged efforts to woo PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in order to save his then government, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah in a rejoinder to former interior minister Sheikh Rashid said that it was ironic that the ‘Boss’ was begging for his government and the “Peon” was hurling threats. 

Replying to Sh Rashid’s taunt that the present coalition government of 11 parties could not be united if Imran left the political arena, Sana retorted that he had been assigned the duty by a conglomerate of 11 parties to deal with the “Evil Political Spirits”. 

“Now try come to Islamabad again. If you come next week, you will not be allowed to go home on ‘someone’ else’s request” Sana warned Rashid. 

Taking a dig at former interior minister, Sana said that the ‘bloody march monger’ ran away from Islamabad in a most inglorious way. 

He said those who brought ‘tsunami of inflation’ wanted to do politics on it now in order to save themselves from the wrath of the people. 

Those who were hurling threats got indulged in vile begging and pleading while leaving other people’s scions on the roads without any help. “Both Boss and the Peon have done the runner,” Sana added.
