Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf's (PTI) Naz Baloch has joined Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) by saying PTI is a "male chauvinist" party.

Ms. Naz Baloch said she considered PTI a symbol of change but with the passage of time the party itself changed for the worst.

She said, "I have grown up with the teachings of democratic norms, due to which I will not throw mud on them, but when I joined PTI it raised a slogan of change".

"I performed my responsibilities in PTI under the leadership of Imran Khan".

"The PTI has deviated from its manifesto and mission, and instead of the younger generation the old faces have occupied the party", she said at a joint news conference with Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and PPP MNA Faryal Talpur at the PPP Media Cell.

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

"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".

That helped them reach the Eastern Conference finals, where they were eliminated by Cleveland in five games. However, Gobert would not acknowledge that the video was a shot at Hayward's perceived disloyalty.

She said, "On a number of occasions, I requested him to reconsider his policy about Karachi, but he distanced himself from true workers", she said. "My services being a daughter of Karachi under the leadership of Imran Khan are not a secret to anyone", she said.

Soon after defecting to PPP, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari welcomed Naz through the microblogging site.

Baloch said she worked hard for party on social media and dedicated herself for the party, but Khan totally neglected her. "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. "The youth activists of this party have been just confined to social media", she said.

"In the 2013 general elections, the party bagged around 800,000 votes from Karachi".

She said that PTI's organisational structure in Karachi and Sindh has been damaged, as it appears that the PTI was playing musical chairs with only four people who have been consistently appointed president of Karachi and Sindh on a rotation basis. She said that her journey with the PPP aims to take forward the ideology of Benazir Bhutto. "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.

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