ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Tuesday that the audio leak is a serious matter and such a security lap is a question mark and in such an environment, those who would visit the Prime Minister’s House will think a hundred times before saying something.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz didn’t ask for any favour for her son-in-law Raheel and a high power committee will be formed to probe into the matter.
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-e-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.
