  • Imran Khan reacts to latest audio leak of his purported conversation about US cypher.
  • Fawad says new leaks only confirm attempt to hide US cable from PM. 
  • Hammad Azhar says “let that sink in”; Zulfi Bukhari says it “further strengthens” PTI stance.

ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman Imran Khan said Wednesday that it was a “good thing” that the government allegedly leaked an audio about the US cypher, saying he thinks the cypher itself should be leaked to the public.

Imran Khan accused Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and co of leaking the latest audio.

“Well done on leaking it. I would say the cypher should get leaked too […] and so everyone knows what a big foreign conspiracy was made,” he said.

“I haven’t even played [on it] yet. Now [we will] play when they expose it,” he concluded.

In a major development, a sound bite of former prime minister Imran Khan speaking about the US cypher — what he time and again has alleged was a “threat” letter to Pakistan — surfaced earlier today after multiple audio leaks of top government officials.

PTI reacts 

The PTI was quick to defend the leaked conversation and senior party leader, Fawad Chaudhry was the first to react.

“The new leaks only confirm the attempt to hide the US cable from the [then] prime minister [Imran Khan],” Fawad wrote on Twitter, minutes after the audio surfaced.

While speaking to the media later, Fawad said that this is the first case of an audio leak from PM House.

“The Supreme Court must take notice and order investigations,” he said.

The politician said that facts about the audio leaks will be revealed when they are probed.

Fawad said that there is no solution to ensure cyber security as any hacker can hack.

He further stated that he doubts that Indian hackers are behind the leaks.

‘Let that sink in’: Hammad Azhar

Meanwhile, PTI leader Hammad Azhar said when Imran Khan was the prime minister, his government was removed following the “exact same script as was given in the cypher”.

“Let that sink in,” he said.

“I think the cypher should be released now and the people of Pakistan should decide whether it was a conspiracy or even more than that.”

‘Audio further strengthens our stance’: Zulfi Bukhari

Imran Khan’s then special assistant for overseas Pakistanis and human resource development, Zulfi Bukhari also joined league and said that the leaked audio “further strengthens” PTI’s stance.

He said that the audio is “completely in agreement” with the PTI’s narrative.

“[The] cipher was hidden from the PM,” he tweeted.

“Best possibility was to bring into bureaucratic records-everything mentioned in cipher & written by ambassador. Great job putting up this audio, further strengthens our stance,” he wrote.

‘PM Shehbaz made a violation’: Ali Zaidi

Meanwhile, PTI leader Ali Zaidi said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has made another violation by letting “an official of the PM House release a voice note”, recorded inside the PM House. 

He requested the apex court to probe into the “foreign-funded regime change”.

“Investigations into the foreign-funded regime change would expose the ones who have actually looted Pakistan, who have harmed Pakistan and who is the foreign agent in this country,” Zaidi said in a video statement released by PTI.

Resham addressed her haters in an interview, refuting their claims that she uses money obtained illegally to support charitable causes.

Apart from her exceptional acting abilities, Resham is also renowned for her empathy.

Her significant charitable activities are well known.

Online criticism has been directed at Resham, despite her commendable attempts to promote poor areas.

Nevertheless, she decides to keep an optimistic outlook and is unmoved by the disparaging remarks.

“People on social media say all kinds of things, like she’s making food for charity out of ill-gotten money,” the woman said in response to the criticism. “But I say, let Allah decide.”

Regardless of the doubts she faces, her steadfast faith and fortitude enable her to carry on her charitable activities.

Resham has been cooking and giving food to the underprivileged for the past 20 years on her own.

In order to underscore the duration of her dedication, she said, “This has been going on continuously for the past six years, all 12 months.”

Her declaration demonstrates her steadfast support for the less fortunate and emphasises her continuous commitment to charitable activity.

Her supporters encouraged Resham to keep doing her good deeds and expressed gratitude for her charity endeavours.

That’s the cruellest remark, someone said. Do not let such hurtful remarks get to Resham’s feelings.

You are an amazing person, and Allah will bless you for all of your good deeds.

“Your work is much appreciated. It is the people of this globe that you are considering.

Another said, “No matter what one does, people will always criticise.” Other than that, they are unemployed. Resham, you’re doing amazing. Allah is indeed more knowledgeable.

Moody’s says the IMF programme will increase Pakistan’s foreign financing.

Published

Moody’s, a reputable international rating agency, has stated that Pakistan’s chances of acquiring funding will increase as a result of the recent agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which offers dependable sources for that purpose from both friendly countries and international financial institutions.

According to a recent Moody’s analysis on Pakistan’s economy, social unrest and tensions could result from Pakistan’s ongoing inflation. The country’s economic reforms may be hampered by increased taxes and potential changes to the energy tariff, it continued.

Moody’s, on the other hand, agrees that the coalition government headed by Shehbaz Sharif of the PML-N is in danger of failing to secure an election mandate, which may potentially undermine the successful and long-lasting execution of economic reforms.

The government’s capacity to proceed with economic changes may be hampered by societal unrest and poor governance, according to Moody’s.

In order to appease the IMF by fulfilling a prerequisite for authorising a rescue package, the government raised the basic tariff on electricity, which coincided with the most recent increase in fuel prices announced on Monday. This report was released by Moody’s.

Food costs have increased in the nation, where the vast majority is experiencing an unprecedented crisis due to the high cost of living, following the government’s earlier presentation of a budget that included a large increase in income tax for the salaried classes and the implementation of GST on commodities like milk.

The most recent comments were made following Islamabad’s achievement of a staff-level agreement for a $7 billion contract that spans 37 months and is contingent upon final approval by the IMF Executive Board.

It states that Pakistan will need foreign financing totaling about $21 billion in 2024–2025 and $23 billion in 2025–2026, meaning that the country’s present $9.4 billion in reserves won’t be sufficient to cover its needs.

Therefore, according to Moody’s, Pakistan is in an alarming position with regard to its external debt, and the next three to five years will be extremely difficult for the formulation and implementation of policies.
