PTI's Naz Baloch jumps ship, joins PPP

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

In addition to the PTI being unable to deliver on its promise of representing the youth, she said that the party was also sidelining its female members.

Baloch said that her father had worked alongside the likes of PPP founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and that she was "returning home".

She said that the workers were getting angry and leaving the party to join others.

Lynn shuts down Pirates as Cardinals cruise 4-0
Williams made three relief appearances against the Cardinals last season, going 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in 4 1/3 innings. Martinez is winless in his last four starts, and his last two outings have been among his worst of the year.

She said that PTI chief Imran Khan didn't pay attention to Sindh though the party in the 2013 general elections had secured over 800,000 votes from the province, especially from Karachi. "I complained time and again that the party was not concentrating much on Karachi and was losing its supporters day by day but nothing happened", explained Ms. Baloch. 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. "The youth activists of this party have been just confined to social media", she said.

"I do not want to defame the party with whom I have had a good run", Baloch said, adding, "I have made complaints about what I feel male chauvinism in the party". "But he (Imran Khan) ignored the party's activists as in contrast to the People's Party which even chose activists of the party for the post of the prime minister and gave them due honour". "No one comes forward apart from four faces, it's like musical chairs in intra-party elections". "This is no secret", she told a questioner. "I will continue their mission with the incumbent party leadership", she said. "These people are responsible for the party's defeat in recent by-elections", she said.

On the occasion, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said Naz Baloch and her father had started off their political career under the guidance of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and added "Baloch's re-joining the party will strengthen the party's Karachi chapter".

Naz Baloch was of the view that she was happy on joining the PPP.
