In a bid to strike a chord with the people of Pakistan, a politician adopted a bizarre way to attract attention before the general elections, which will be held on July 25.
Ayaz Memon Motiwala from Karachi decided to sit in garbage dumps and lie down in sewage water. The politician is an independent candidate from Karachi, posted on Facebook pictures of himself sitting on a pile of garbage, lying down in sewage water and inside a pothole. Moreover, he also drank the sewage water he was sitting on, in a Facebook Live video as part of his strange campaigns.
Motiwala's pictures are garnering attention online and have already collected over 1,800 likes and hundreds of comments. The pictures also gained mixed reactions but the politician stood by his unique way of campaigning and said his idea was to draw attention to the unhygienic conditions and faulty sewage systems of the city.
Several people slammed Motiwala labelling his stunt as a desperate attempt for attention while there are others who have come out in the politician's support. "Drama", wrote one Facebook commenter, while another said "Very good job sir".
Whether he will amass votes is uncertain; Motiwala is definitely collecting several likes online.
