This gets the published SPListItem (omitting any entries which do not have a published version).

What I need is "Get the last published version in an SPListItem, even if the latest version is not published".

Thanks for the effort buddy!

For Example:
The list like this

1 --Published
2 -- UP
3 --UP
4 -- P
5-- UP
6 -- Up

Sample code:
SPList list = web.Lists[listname];

SPListItem LastPublishedItem = new SPListItem();

foreach (SPListItem item in list.Items)
              LastPublishedItem = item;      

after excecution of above code the "LastPublishedItem" contains last published version of the above list,
in this case the 4 is the final output.

Refer this link for various properties and methods for SPListItem.

This is what worked for me.

foreach (SPListItemVersion _liv in _li.Versions)
 if (_liv.Level == SPFileLevel.Published)
  //Do something
