The problem is that it is not entirely clear which ones are suckers and which ones are _any remanents_ of the graft. On the first look it seems that your actual rose is dead and you have nothing but sukcers left. I am waiting for others to suggest. You can ask (or pm) umar khan sb. He is a rose expert!

These are all suckers which I had seperated from the original one on the dead of the original ones.

Jazak Allah! for helping me out.
How to identify suckers on rose and tell me about bud union and basal break and root stock. I have bought purple rose recently and some new branches appeared from the bud union I think but they were having 7 leaves on the leaflet and was not of that color as of old leaves so I cutted them off.
I have no pictures of it but some old pictures might do it.

It is difficult to identify suckers in your pictures. Sorry about that. I had thought that it would be easy, but it seems that all you have is suckers and a dead graft. Buy new rose plants. But here is how one can identify suckers for future:

For a new rose: First locate where grafting was done. It may be above the soil or below the soil, depending on the depth the new rose plant placed in earth. It is like a surgery mark on the stem. Anything growing below the graft mark is a sucker.

For an old rose: The graft mark is lost. The easy way to identify a sucker is by a different leaf size and leave texture from the main flowering rose. The sucker's leaves are small in size than the grafted rose. It is a thin slender non-branching stem typically with lots of thorns. Once you identify it, trace its base and cut it right there either with a sharp khurpee or ideally with a pruning shear.

You can hundreds of excellent images for rose suckers:

We used to buy roses from Shalimar nursery. Highest quality but slightly expensive. There must be other (or better) nurseries now...but I am not aware of that.

Next to Federal Urdu University (Gulshan Campus) formerly called Urdu College. I don't think they will have roses in this hot season. But a visit will be worthwhile. Note that plants are expensive there but are of excellent quality especially fruits.
