Former Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government advisor Ajmal Wazir, who stepped down from his post after an audio scandal, said that a conspiracy was hatched against him.

In a statement, Ajmal Wazir said that he was convinced of the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and would face the charges. Artificial audio tape was created by editing various meetings and briefings.

The basis on which this audio was based was the list of the advertising companies for the TV channel. According to the information rules, the chairman of the steering committee is the Minister of Information. The steering committee had met twice and was chaired by the health minister, said Ajmal Wazir.

Former Information Advisor said that he has nothing to do with the issue for which he is being criticized.

I was an honorary member of the committee, had no decision-making power, he added.

Earlier following allegations, Ajmal Wazir was removed as Advisor to KPK Chief Minister on Information and Public Relations.

The decision was taken by KP CM Mahmood Khan after an alleged recording of audio call between Wazir and an advertisement company representative surfaced.

A notification of Ajmal Wazir’s removal has also been issued and CM Mahmood Khan has ordered to launch an immediate inquiry into this matter.

Wazir was appointed as the advisor to the chief minister for information in 2019. He had been assigned the task of supervision and coordination of merged districts affairs in addition to serving as the spokesperson of the provincial government.

Wazir had joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) just before the July 2018 general election.

He was earlier a member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam and had remained its central vice-president.
