Naz Baloch explains why she left PTI to join PPP.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) former leader Naz Baloch joined Pakistan People's Party (PPP) officially in a press briefing on Sunday.

The new entrant to the PPP said that she had spent good time with Tehreek-e-Insaf but now she had made a decision to part ways with her parent political party as the PTI had deviated from its manifesto and objectives. "I feel as if I have returned to my home", Baloch said.

Baloch said she worked hard for party on social media and dedicated herself for the party, but Khan totally neglected her.

She said PTI Chairman Imran Khan's focus revolved around national and Punjab politics and he has neglected Sindh. She said that the ideological worker was disappointed because today the people standing to Imran Khan's left and right were neither the youth nor do any of them speak up for Sindh.

Taking aim at the appointment of the same group of people at key party positions in the metropolis, she said it is no surprise that the party's support has reduced in the city.


Soon after defecting to PPP, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari welcomed Naz through the microblogging site.

"I tried to convince Imran Khan that he must focus [the attention of his party] in Karachi and other parts of Sindh, but he did not pay heed".

In terms of decisions within the party she said, "Male chauvinism is very open, women are not heard nor are in the decision making posts".

"I ask Imran to please rescue his remaining party, otherwise the situation will spiral out of control and these people who have their own vested interests will spoil the party mission", she warned. "Everything I have done has been for Pakistan", she told a questioner. "No one comes forward apart from four faces, it's like musical chairs in intra-party elections".

Speaking on the occasion, PPP leader Faryal Talpur said that at present PPP was spreading in the entire country and would secure a major victory in the coming general elections.

Naz Baloch was of the view that she was happy on joining the PPP. "Women do not have the same access or representation in the decision-making committee", she said.
