Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that the audio leak of the Prime Minister House was a serious matter, adding that a high-level joint investigation team (JIT) would be formed to investigate it.

“Those who will visit the Prime Minister House will now think a hundred times before saying something,” the premier said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday.

The prime minister termed the purported surfacing of the audio leak of the Prime Minister House as a ‘serious security lapse’, saying that visitors from the foreign countries would also feel uncomfortable if the conversations were bugged in the official places and such breaches of cyber secrecy were related to matter of respect of 220 million Pakistanis.

PM Shehbaz said that Maryam Nawaz didn’t seek favour from him for the import of machinery for her son-in-law.

Speaking about his address at the United Nation’s 77th General Assembly, the prime minister said he fought Pakistan’s case with all his might and highlighted plight of the Kashmiris in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Speaking about his meeting with the US president, the premier said that he thanked the US for providing relief for the flood-hit people of Pakistan.

“US President Joe Biden during a meeting in New York has expressed solidarity and sympathy with Pakistan,” he added.

To a query, the prime minister said that the country was passing through ‘a state of war on the economic front’ and the coalition government was fully endeavoring to set the national economy right.

“Rest assure, we will not run away and will put it on the right path,” he emphasized.

The prime minister said that the coalition government had focused on the economic situation and striving day and night to improve the economic conditions, therefore, they had no time for setting the political scores with Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan.

If he had spent half of the time of his government on strengthening the economy, there might be some improvement, he regretted without naming Imran Khan.

The prime minister responding to another query categorically said that the general elections would be held on time and ruled out any threats to the coalition government.
