ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Friday false narrative of PTI Chairman Imran Khan declaring the incumbent government a product of conspiracy had busted as he urged the nation to distinguish between “truth and fraud”.

The Prime Minister’s remarks came as another purported audio clip of Imran Khan surfaced. In the latest audio, Khan, ex-minister Asad Umar, and the then-principal secretary Azam Khan could allegedly be heard discussing the cipher in a meeting and how to use it in their political interest.

Speaking at the foundation-stone laying ceremony of Bhara Kahu Bypass project here, PM Sharif said: “Imran Niazi wasted five months of the nation by concocting lies and propaganda about his successor government, however, his own audio leaks exposed his fraudulence.”

The Premier said the PTI chief blamed the politicians as traitors, however in reality, it was he who betrayed the nation. “Imran’s lies about an ‘imported government’ are in fact a conspiracy against the entire nation,” he said, stressing the need for people to understand the “reality of a liar”.

PM Sharif, who recently represented the country at the forums of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and the United Nations General Assembly, said the leaders of some friendly countries during the sideline meetings conveyed him their annoyance over the irresponsible foreign policy of Imran Khan.

The Premier said his government was steadfast in dealing with the immense challenges after the previous government pushed the country to the brink of economic collapse. He expressed his commitment to rebuild and develop the country.

The Prime Minister was given a briefing regarding the modalities and execution of the project. It was highlighted that the Rs6 billion project of 5.4 kilometre had been finalised after a transparent bidding process.
