ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Monday that he has kept his long march plan secret and only a close group of people knew the details, ARY News reported.
In an interview with private news channel, the PTI chief said that “unimaginable” sea of people will march toward Islamabad, adding that he has kept his plan a secret in view of recent audio leaks and “tapping” of phone calls.
“I have kept my plan for the long march a secret because our phones are being tapped and for the first time I am feeling as if I am a traitor of the country,” he added.
The PTI chief further said that “Haqeeqi Azadi” march will be the “biggest” in country’s history, adding that special instructions will be issued to party workers before the start of the march.
PM Imran Khan also lamented the state of security at PM House and termed the audio leaks from the PMO a major security breach. “These audios could benefit enemies,” Khan said.
Talking about the cypher, Imran Khan said that its master copy was in the Foreign Office.
“The master copy [of the cypher] is still present in the Foreign Office,” he said, adding that copies of the cypher were also sent to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and then the National Assembly speaker.
Imran Khan also alleged that the opposition denied seeing the copy of cypher as they were part of the foreign conspiracy. “PM Shehbaz is real beneficiary of the foreign conspiracy”, he added.
