Here comes another twist in the story in ongoing political saga.
The PMLN led government allegedly released the purported audio tape of conversation between property tycoon Malik Riaz and former president Asif Zardari.
In the talk, Riaz told Zardari that he received messages from Khan as he wanted patch up. Zardari refused. The conversation took place at the time of no confidence motion against him.
The audio tape purportedly released by the elements government to “expose” Khan for his last ditch effort to save his government.
This audio will be very damaging for Khan and PTI.
Khan has set so called high moral and declared that he would fix Zardari but in the video a message is being conveyed for his help.
Let’s see what Khan says on this audio. If one believes this audio then it is shocking how come Khan can beg of Zardari.
But apparently it seems this is a tactical move by the government to bring Khan into new controversy.
Malik Riaz is known to make shit up while trying to bring political foes together. During Bhurban Accord talks between PPP & PMLN he was the one who brought Quran and was over mediating between two sides. Telling rosy stories of both sides to each other. https://t.co/nFfFtkkJOW— Adnan Anwar (@adnan_anwar1) May 28, 2022
Malik Riaz has no affiliation with IK & PTI.— Usman Ali Shah (@usmanallishah) May 28, 2022
Khan alone has defeated the whole group of PDM of 13 parties.
Khan's popularity is at its peak these days.
Why would he need Corrupt & politically dishonest Zardari who murdered his own wife?
Totally bs and fabricated audio leak.
Perhaps some investigative reporter should also look into how Malik Riaz acquired state land for Bahria ISB/Pindi. It was forrest land of govt of Punjab and how the then secretary (retired fauji) was changed to alot him the land,the rest is history. https://t.co/xscM4nwyDw— Chair-man (@Kibitzer_IV) May 28, 2022

Zardari-Thaikedar’s leaked audio depicts the bond of ties between the two crooks ,looting/plundering the masses since decades.— MNA (@Engr_Naveed111) May 28, 2022
Malik Riaz gifted AZ Bilawal house in Lahore , Zardari gifted him 400B land in Karachi.
A mere attempt to defame and mudslinging IK , it won’t work.
Another day, another ZALALAT for pti supporters. The phone call between Zardari and Malik Riaz has been leaked, Malik Riaz conveyed Imran Khan’s message that he was BEGGING for a “patch-up” before VoNC, but Zardari said, “It’s IMPOSSIBLE now!”. What a spineless narcissist…— Saad Kaiser 🇵🇸 (@TheSaadKaiser) May 28, 2022
If you actually think he would beg Malik Riaz to patch up with these crooks, you don't know the man.— Zuhair Abbasi (@zuhair_abbasi) May 28, 2022
Criticism is haram for PTI . They have easier way out to label everyone lifafa. These are not just allegations but documents are available . PTI didnt even bother to justify since malik riaz kept everyone happy and its youth.. cant ask questions .. https://t.co/WPn4j0qo6F— Ahsen Bajwa (@AhsenBajwa) May 28, 2022
How a call between Asif Zardari & Malik Riaz can be a Proof against Imran khan? Obviously someone knew what would be said in this conversation so it was pre-recorded & now released just to defame IK.— Major Tahir Sadiq (@MajorTahirSadiq) May 28, 2022
You think people would believe it? They don't have common sense?
launching Malik Riaz now. We all know high ranking generals are pet dogs of Malik Riaz after retirement. Imran Khan's moral integrity is tiers above any dynastic politician, high ranking general in this country. I'm sorry but he can't be bought like you. you've nothing.— trochlearnotchass (@ZoraizAsim) May 28, 2022
Malik Riaz is the darling and friend of ALL. His assets were seized by the U.K.’s National Crime Agency. If @ImranKhanPTI claims to be so honest and doing Jihad against corruption, I dare him to raise his voice against Malik Riaz’s corruption https://t.co/hbLwn1l0p2— Yousuf Nazar (@YousufNazar) May 28, 2022
Geo claiming Malik Riaz telephoned Asif Zardari to convey @ImranKhanPTI message of a patch-up— Mubashir Zaidi (@Xadeejournalist) May 28, 2022
If Malik Riaz expects Pakistanis to believe that his leaked audio is authentic, he should release the messages Imran Khan allegedly sent him. Simple.— Mehr Tarar (@MehrTarar) May 28, 2022
One thing is very interesting Malik Riaz is seen in every power game… What a character he is in Pakistan politics. PAK DESTINY
