Naz Baloch bids adieu to PTI, joins PPP

PTI’s Naz joins PPP

Those getting wickets could not save their own wicket

Naz Baloch, a leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has joined the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). "They are focused on the centre", she asserted.

Baloch while discussing PTI's situation said local leadership created huge gap between Imran Khan and party workers.

Baloch, a resident of Karachi and the daughter of PPP leader Abdullah Baloch, made the announcement at a press conference here alongside Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and PPP leader Faryal Talpur. "Imran sb did not give time to Sindh nor the organization", Naz Baloch said.

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".

She advised the PTI chief Imran Khan to save whatever party had been left with him.

She however said that she did not have any ill will against Imran Khan and continued to respect him. "This is no secret", she told a questioner.

"Bilawal Bhutto is truly representing the youth".

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.

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

Naz Baloch was a central vice president of PTI. "Unfortunately they did not bring change in the country but in the party". Baloch contested the 2013 general election from the NA-240 constituency as a PTI candidate.

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".

Regarding supply of clean drinking water, he said that efforts are being made to help resolve the problem pertaining to provision of clean drinking water to the people in the province.

"I am a representative of Sindh".

She said that she would continue doing the same under the leadership of the PPP.

In this regard she cited the victory of PPP Senator Saeed Ghani who has won PS-114 by-election and said this had convinced her to join the PPP.

Regarding the law recently passed by the Sindh Assembly to strike down the National Accountability Ordinance-1999 (NAO) in the province, the CM said that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf had imposed the NAO when a state of emergency was declared in the country.
