“Political Plot Twist: PPP’s Latif Khosa Takes the Leap, Joins PTI’s Ranks!”

Lawyer and disgruntled PPP leader Sardar Latif Khosa on Sunday joined the PTI.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Khosa said that he had taken the step with the hope of taking the country towards a “beautiful” future.
“The world says that people do press conferences to leave [the party] and you are doing a press conference to join,” he laughed, referring to the manner in which several PTI leaders had left the party in the aftermath of the May 9 violence.

“I am doing this deliberately. If rendering services for your mother country makes you a lunatic, then yes I am a lunatic,” he said. He further said that one should not be fearful to speak the truth.

In September, the PPP had suspended Khosa’s party membership and also ousted him from its central executive committee (CEC). PPP Secretary General Nayyar Bukhari said the decision was taken after Khosa had failed to reply to a show-cause notice issued to him by the party.

Khosa was issued a show-cause notice by the PPP for “defending/pleading and representing [the] head of another political party without prior approval of [party] leadership”.

Although the letter did not mention anyone by name, it was a clear reference to Imran Khan. Khosa was representing the PTI founder in several cases registered against him.

Earlier the same month, Khosa was served a show-cause notice for giving a statement in favour of Imran.
