In a major political development, Sardar Latif Khosa Advocate joined the Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) on Sunda. Sardar Latif Khosa was the central leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and remained the Governor of Punjab during the party-led government.
Speaking to the media in Lahore, the lawyer — who has represented PTI chief Imran Khan in several cases — said 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 quipped, referring to how 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, adding that life, death, honor, respect, and sustenance were all in God’s hands.
