Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Naz Baloch has joined the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Sunday.

In a press conference Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah announced that Naz Baloch has joined PPP. "I disagree with the PTI's policies which focus only at Punjab and the centre's politics", she added.

Baloch while discussing PTI's situation said local leadership created huge gap between Imran Khan and party workers. "This is no secret", she told a questioner. "This is not the dawn we wished to see".

"When Imran Khan comes to Karachi for his five or six-hour-long visits, he is kept away from the party workers".

PPP MNA Faryal Talpur also welcomed Naz Baloch in the party.

Baloch said she asked Imran Khan many times to give some attention to Sindh but his main focus is on Punjab.

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

"Ideological workers and leaders have been disappointed and are now leaving the party", she said, adding, "Some people standing on the right and left of Imran are neither young, nor have they rendered sacrifices for the party". "Women do not have the same access or representation in the decision-making committee", she said. "Unfortunately they did not bring change in the country but in the party". She requested Imran Khan to listen to the complaints of disgruntled workers so that what was left of the party in Sindh remains intact.

She said that the PTI had lost the recent by-election on the Sindh Assembly constituency in Karachi as virtually the game of "musical chairs" was being played among four people of PTI as every time one among these four leaders was chosen as the president of Karachi chapter of the party. "I even eulogized the services of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto during my time with the PTI", she said. She said that at present the PTI had been under occupation of the "elders" as youth of the party had been rejected. "And if he has returned to represent the people, then we should support him in his campaign and his struggle for Pakistan, and stand by him", she said. "I will continue their mission with the incumbent party leadership", she said.
