Those getting wickets could not save their own wicket

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) leader Naz Baloch has joined Sindh's ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Sunday, pakistantribe.com reported.

"Today, I have realised that the PPP led by Bilawal Bhutto is the representative party of the youth of Pakistan and the PTI has become the party of old men", she said.

Baloch said that her father had worked alongside the likes of PPP founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and that she was "returning home". "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". He welcomed her on behalf of the party.

Baloch said that she had rendered countless services for protest sit-in of the party in the past but at the moment she was not in the mood of doing mud-slinging on her parent political party.

Regarding youth she said, "There is no youth representation, which was also promised during elections". She requested Imran Khan to listen to the complaints of disgruntled workers so that what was left of the party in Sindh remains intact. "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. "My services being a daughter of Karachi under the leadership of Imran Khan are not a secret to anyone", she said.

"Faryal Talpur has given the women respect, brought them into the decision-making process and kept them in the loop". "I will continue their mission with the incumbent party leadership", she said.

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 ran for election to the national assembly from Karachi's Constituency NA-240 in May 2013.

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. "The party, which championed the youth and called for change, has, itself, changed", Naz Baloch said.
