Sanaullah requests that the SC and NA speaker pay attention to a recent audio leak

Sanaullah urges SC, NA speaker to take notice of new audio leak purportedly featuring PML-Q lawmakers
On Tuesday, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) and Speaker of the National Assembly Raja Pervaiz Ashraf to “take notice” of a recent audio leak that allegedly included PML-Q MNAs Hussain Elahi and Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain and in which the two were heard discussing kidnapping a lawmaker.

On Monday night, a little more than a minute of audio began going viral on social media. Hussain and Wajahat are seen in the video apparently planning a potential “vote of confidence” in the NA.

In order to prevent “turncoats” from assisting Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in winning a vote of confidence that the party intended to use to “test” the premier, the PTI has hinted at returning to the legislature.

The interior minister condemned the planning of a woman’s kidnapping in response to today’s revelation. Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, and his desire to “purchase the conscience” of MPs from the PML-Q and PML-N, he claimed, had been “exposed before the public.”

Which court will provide Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, the party’s leader, and MNA Farah Khan [sic] with justice? Sanaullah tweeted, “CJ should take note of the audio and this trade of conscience. The NA speaker should do the same.
