Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Naz Baloch on Sunday announced her joining of the PPP, alleging that the PTI’s focus is centred on Punjab and not Sindh, where she is from.

Addressing the media alongside Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and senior PPP figure Faryal Talpur at the party’s media cell, she said “I’ve returned home as my father laid down the foundation of the PPP alongside Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto”.

She said she does not want to smear the party where she spent seven years of her life. “I am a representative of Sindh. I disagree with the PTI’s policies which focus only at Punjab and the centre’s politics,” she said.

Criticising the appointment of the same group of people as the PTI’s Karachi heads, she said it is no surprise that the party’s support has dwindled in the city.

Around half an hour before her announcement, Baloch, who was considered an active PTI member on the social media with over 600,000 followers, tweeted the following:

The move comes after several recent moves into the PTI of PPP leaders in Punjab. The most recent transfer was of former PPP senator Babar Awan, who has since assumed the charge of being one of the party’s spokespersons.

Prior to Awan, PPP’s Firdous Ashiq Awan, Noor Alam Khan and Nazar Gondal also joined the PTI.
