Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), claimed on Monday that in light of the Prime Minister Office (PMO) audios that leaked on social media the day before, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja would have resigned “if he had any shame.”

Imran declared, “Now new audio leaks have come forth where the chief election commissioner has been shown to be the house-servant of Nawaz Sharif,” during a ceremony at Government College University Lahore.

The PML-N leader is allegedly asked in another audio leak “who should be disqualified,” according to the PTI leader, and the CEC says he will “disqualify Imran in the Toskhakhana matter.”

Imran mocked, “If he [CEC] had any shame, he would quit, but he has no shame. We will need to persuade him to resign because of this.”

Imran made the apparent jibe at Pakistan Mulsim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ishaq Dar, who is likely to take over after PML-N leader Miftah Ismail resigned from the position of finance minister yesterday, by claiming that the nation’s “greatest fraudster” is returning to Pakistan.

“When the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) asked him [Dar] how he got all this money when his father was simply a bicycle shop owner, he boarded the prime minister’s plane and fled the country with the excuse that he was going to seek medical treatment,” Imran said, while claiming that the former finance minister was retuning under “a deal”.

Imran also said that “there is more that will be revealed in the audio leaks” and asked the audience to “wait for the coming episodes”.

The Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, prominent members of his family, and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) may be mentioned here. On Sunday, audio recordings from the PMO that appeared to be of their talks went viral on social media.

The opposition harshly criticised the audios and highlighted concerns about the PMO’s security. Nevertheless, a number of government ministers argued that the audios showed no evidence of misconduct. Speaking today at the university gathering.

Imran said, “I have declared jihad against these thieves, so everyone get ready. He pledged, “God willing, I will fight them as long as I am alive and I will triumph.”

Imran also criticised Shehbaz Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari, the co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party, and Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the leader of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), in his speech at a political rally the day before.

Imran, the former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, declared that Shahbaz, Zardari, and Fazl were set to be dismissed from the game. He continued, “For them, I have an in-swing yorker.” He said, “Rana Sana and Shehbaz Sharif have prepared a strategy for us, but they are unaware of my plan.”
