ISLAMABAD: Reacting to the latest purported audio clip of PTI Chairman Imran Khan in which he is allegedly talking about horse-trading in the National Assembly, PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry Friday claimed that the clip is forged.

Taking to Twitter, the former information minister said that people are aware of the source of these audios.

"Can you justify the NRO 2 by making such audios? It won't happen. People know where these are being produced and how."

The latest audio clip was the third alleged audio of the PTI chairman leaked in the last few weeks following a series of audios allegedly featuring representatives of the incumbent government.

The previous two audios purportedly featured PTI leaders discussing the alleged US conspiracy and how to use it in their favour.

The latest leaked audio clip can be heard below:

In the latest leaked audio, the comments made by Imran Khan suggested that the meeting took place before the voting on the no-confidence motion was held against him.

The audio mentions a 48-hour time period and it matches with the Supreme Court order that was issued on April 7. The top court had directed the National Assembly speaker to hold a vote on the motion no later than April 9.

It is not clear who else was present in the meeting where the discussion regarding the party position in the National Assembly took place.

Transcript of leaked audio

You are greatly mistaken that the number game is now complete

It's not like that...don't think that it's over because 48 hours from now is a long long time

Big things are happening in this. I am playing some moves of my own which we cannot make public

[pause, background change]

I am buying five, I have five. [We need] to give the message that the five are very important

And tell him if he secures five more and it turns to 10, the game will be in our hand

The nation is alarmed right now.

Across the board people want us to win in any way possible, so no one needs to worry if this is right or wrong - whatever the tactic.

Even if someone breaks one, it will have a big impact.
