Naz Baloch announced the decision during a press conference in Karachi

A prominent female leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Naz Baloch on Sunday announced to leave her political party to join the Pakistan People's Party.

PPP's Aseefa Bhutto Zardari greeted Naz Baloch on twitter and Chief Minister Sindh also welcomed her addition into the PPP ranks.

"As a daughter of Karachi and of Sindh, I performed my responsibilities in PTI under the leadership of Imran Khan". "The youth activists of this party have been just confined to social media", she said.

According to her, the PTI, which supported the younger generation and called for a revolution in the country, had itself changed. "This is not the dawn we wished to see". "This is because that Imran Khan used to visit Karachi for a span of a few hours and even during this time, workers of the party were made to stay away from him".

Naz Baloch was a central vice president of PTI. 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. "I have made complaints about what I feel is male chauvinism in the party; only men are present when it is time to make decisions".

"We will soon summon the assembly session and discuss issues on which the governor has raised objection (s), Shah said, adding, "The assembly is the supreme decision-making forum in the province", he said". "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".

"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. She said that her journey with the PPP aims to take forward the ideology of Benazir Bhutto.

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

"I feel as if I have come home again", Baloch told reporters. She ran for election to the national assembly from Karachi's Constituency NA-240 in May 2013.
