I am trying to reach the voice message saying huge volume if applications we cant escalate the issue wait for the further information provided by case worker and allow us some time like wise its saying and unable to contact them

It is absolutely correct, due to the war in Ukraine, there are some delays. Are this application submitted from outside the UK?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
No inside the uk
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
For inside uk in mentioned its 8 weeks of time so is there delaying now a days then they mentioned time ?

Alright, in general at present there are huge delays but not for skilled worker visas as I am aware of.
You can call your local member of parliament's office as well, they will chase the Home Office on your behalf.

You can also submit an official complaint to them, shall I send you the link?

If there is a delay, yes, you would receive an email. 
I understand that you are worried but it has been 8 weeks today as you said, there is not a huge delay, you should receive a response soon.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Is it good idea to wait for couple of weeks due to delay of uk crisis.

I would wait one more week and then case them.
