This Politician is Campaigning from Garbage Dumps to Manhole Covers to Highlight Issues in Karachi

In a unique display of protest, an election candidate from Karachi, Ayaz Memon Motiwala, has asked for votes by sitting in garbage dumps and delivering a speech from a manhole in a bid to draw the attention of residents towards the unhygienic conditions in the city.

His video on Facebook now has 827,332 views.

Mr. Motiwala’s campaign for elections is unique and he is becoming pretty famous amongst the masses due to his clever use of social media. The faulty sewage system of Karachi – like that of Lahore as we have seen during the recent rains – needs a lot of attention and Motiwala is definitely doing that in his own bizarre way.
