    and he shall sail through NA 105. No sympathy vote for ahmad mukhtar this time out and no notable PML N or PTI candidate from NA 105 anyway. I think PTI has completely ignored Gujrat and Mandi Bahaudin for some strange reasons. No notable candidate in both cities. Anyway i will still vote PTI.

    @liaqat ali:
    I’m assuming you weren’t in Punjab or Pakistan for the last 5 years OR you simply don’t know the meaning of corruption?
