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

Naz Baloch said, "It feels as if Iam back home". She said that the PTI had limited itself just to Punjab and had been merely doing politics of the Centre.

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. PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the leader of the youth in the country, she added.

"I tried to convince Imran Khan that he must focus [the attention of his party] in Karachi and other parts of Sindh, but he did not pay heed". "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".

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