Audio leak: Zardari rejects reconciliation request of Imran Khan thru Malik Riaz

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Saturday claimed that Imran Khan’s patch-up message in the leaked audio was dated before the no-confidence motion tabled against the former prime minister. Through Malik Riaz, Imran urged Asif Ali Zardari not to participate in the no-trust move.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan real-state tycoon Malik Riaz’s telephonic conversation with PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari has been leaked, wherein Malik could be heard giving the ex-president a message of PTI Chairman Imran Khan for reconciliation.

The audio’s date and time have not been confirmed as of yet, but Riaz could be heard saying that Khan has requested him to mediate between the two political leaders, Geo TV reported today.

The audio’s transcript:

“Hello,” Zardari says while picking up the phone. At this, Riaz said: “Assalamualikum sir.” 

Following the salutations, the PPP co-chairman asked the real-estate tycoon the reason behind his call.

“Sir, I just wanted to inform you about a matter that I have told you about before. I wanted to talk to you about something and you told me that we would discuss it later,” Riaz can be heard saying.

“I just wanted to say that Khan has sent me several messages for a patch-up with you and today, he has sent several messages to me again.”

In response, Zardari said: “It’s impossible now” _ or absolutely not.

At this, Riaz said: “Yes, that’s fine, I just wanted to bring this matter to your notice.”

Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Saturday claimed that Imran Khan’s patch-up message in the leaked audio between him and Malik Riaz was dated before the no-confidence motion tabled against the former prime minister, urging Asif Ali Zardari not to participate in the move.

While addressing a public gathering in Bhawalpur, the PML-N leader talked about the alleged audio call between the property tycoon and PPP leader in which the two were talking about “Imran Khan’s message” for a patch-up.

She said “his (Imran’s) friend” pleaded with Zardari on behalf of the PTI chief “not to participate” in the no-trust move.

“Khan started begging Nawaz Sharif two days before the march to announce a date for the elections when he saw that his march was failing and said he would call off the march in return.”

The rally commemorated with Youm-e-Takbir – the 24th anniversary of successful nuclear tests – when Pakistan became the seventh nation and only Muslim country to possess nuclear weapons.
