PML-N seeks public apology from Imran on cypher ‘conspiracy’ | The Express Tribune

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has lashed out at PTI Chairman Imran Khan for playing with the country’s national interest, asking him to apologise to the nation for exploiting sensitive diplomatic document, cypher, for his political gains.

“The audio has exposed the ugly game he played with the country. Conspiracy was hatched indeed but it was hatched by Imran Khan himself against the country’s national interest,” she, flanked by other PML-N leaders and federal ministers, said while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday.

“He did tampering and forgery with a sensitive document… this is a serious matter but I give credit to Asad Umar for saying that this is not a letter but Imran Khan persuade them to turn it into a conspiracy,” she said while referring to the alleged leaked audio conversation between Imran and his aides.

Speaking about reports that the cypher was missing from PM House, Maryam accused the former premier of taking the diplomatic cable away with him. “He should seek apology from the nation for playing with the country’s national interest and waving a fake letter in front of them,” she added.

Calling Imran a ‘mastermind of conspiracies’, the ruling party leader said the former premier severed the country’s ties with friendly countries. “He conspired against the country’s security, its foreign policy and democratic system.”

Speaking about the alleged leaked audio clips of PM Shehbaz Sharif and other government officials, Maryam said either in official or private conversations people would never find anything against the country and the nation.

“We can sacrifice our political interest for the country.”

Maryam also demanded that Imran Khan should be thrown into prison for violating the Constitution and playing with the national interest, saying “he is still a ladla (darling) of someone”.

“Certainly he is not our blue-eyed boy but of someone who is in South Punjab these days… but he too is not sincere with him but using him for his own vested interests,” she remarked.

Speaking at the start of the presser, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said Imran’s crime was unpardonable and added that government will under its legal duty will take appropriate action against him for “abrogating” the Constitution.

Calling the former premier a ‘conspirator’ who is on a mission to destroy the country, Dar said, “He has already destroyed the country’s economy. All macroeconomic indicators have worsened… he [Imran] pushed the country towards default”.

“Minutes of the meeting are present but cypher is missing… it has been established that Imran violated the Constitution and violated his oath of prime minister,” he added.

The government will be failing its constitutional duty if it did not take appropriate action against the ousted PM. “We will take this matter forward in light of Constitution and law.”

Speaking about economy, the finance minister vowed to reverse the damage caused to economy by the previous PTI-led regime.

“We saved the country from default… currency has started to improve… during the last five days an improvement has been witnessed in the country’s economic indicators.”

Dar said he passed on relief to the people by reducing fuel prices despite challenges.
