Naz Baloch, a leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has joined the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

In a press conference Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah announced that Naz Baloch has joined PPP.

During the press conference she criticised PTI leadership while saying that PTI's change slogans has been changed. "Imran sb did not give time to Sindh nor the organization", Naz Baloch said.

She advised the PTI chief Imran Khan to save whatever party had been left with him. She said it was certainly an unusual political phenomenon, which could astonish the people that someone who had been associated with Imran Khan had now made a decision to join the PPP. "My services being a daughter of Karachi under the leadership of Imran Khan are not a secret to anyone", she said.

She claimed that only PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is representing youth at present. She said opportunists from various parties were welcomed in the party and long time workers of the party were ignored. "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.

"Faryal Talpur has given the women respect, brought them into the decision-making process and kept them in the loop". Baloch contested the 2013 general election from the NA-240 constituency as a PTI candidate.

Baloch blamed a group of four people who she alleged were eyeing the coveted post of Karachi division's president rather than working for the grassroots. She said that her journey with the PPP aims to take forward the ideology of Benazir Bhutto.

Alluding to recent defections to the PTI in Punjab province, she said the ideological workers were upset because the people joining the party were neither the youth, nor care about the policies of Sindh. "The Sindh governor is the representative of the Federation here as he should duly pay attention to the province which seems nowhere to be seen", he said.

When asked about the National Accountability Ordinance 1999 that was repealed by the Sindh Assembly, the chief minister said: "After the 18th Amendment, provincial assemblies are mandated to make laws". Her father Abdullah Baloch was a member of the PPP but she instead chose to join the PTI.
