Rana Farooq Saeed states that the fate of PPP leaders will be decided at the upcoming CEC meeting In a surprising turn of events, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) abruptly suspended the basic membership of senior leaders Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan and Barrister Sardar Latif Khosa on Wednesday, reportedly due to their violation of the party’s discipline.
Rana Farooq Saeed, President of PPP’s Central Punjab chapter, confirmed the suspension of the duo’s basic membership in an exclusive interview with Geo News. It was suggested to the party leadership that Khosa and Ahsan’s basic membership should be suspended, and the final decision regarding their expulsion from the party is expected to be made during the upcoming CEC meeting.
It is worth mentioning that both Ahsan and Khosa are members of PPP’s CEC.
Earlier today, the PPP inaugurated a “Wall of Shame” at the party’s Central Punjab Secretariat, where photos of those who betrayed the party after enjoying prestigious positions and privileges were displayed. Khosa’s picture was among those hung on the wall.
Furthermore, Barrister Ahsan and Barrister Khosa met with Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Bandial on Tuesday to discuss important legal matters, as reported by The News.

During the hour-long meeting, the senior lawyers briefed the CJP on significant constitutional petitions filed in the apex court regarding the fundamental rights of citizens and the supremacy of the Constitution, according to sources close to the matter.
It was also learned that Barrister Ahsan informed CJP Bandial about his constitutional petition challenging the trials of civilians through military courts, urging the chief justice to expedite the matter in the apex court.
In addition, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan visited the house of the PPP leader and strongly condemned the gun attack that took place there. Later, Khosa expressed gratitude to the former prime minister on his Twitter account and pledged to work with his legal team, but this tweet drew criticism from PPP’s leadership.
