After taking the beating from TTP and in elections it looks like a good day for PPP today. They won two NA and two Sindh seats in the elections today and one by toss in Punjab. The best of all they defeated the lota pir, feudal and turncoat in Sindh. The reason he contested from multiple seats is he was not sure he would win any seat for sure. Looking at the results of Sindh today, PPP should make seat adjustment with ANP for all by-elections and there would be dozens of seats to go for.
