Sheikh Rasheed—the chief of Awami Muslim League (AML) has maintained his legacy of being in the centre of attention all the time. He has been seen engaged in most theatrical ways for campaigning for votes in his two constituencies.
Sheikh Rasheed while visiting a market asking people for votes, was asked by a possible voter that what the AML- Chief could do for him.
The outspoken and much-liked politician said that he would make a “roti” for the voter and started making the roti himself at a “tandoor”—saying that he would give the voter a roti made from his own hands.
The media-savvy politician previously started his electoral campaign in Rawalpindi on the back of a motorcycle.
On the 24th of June, Sheikh Rasheed set off on a tour of his constituency on a motorbike. While conversing to media, he expressed that he is thinking of replacing his party symbol to a motorcycle from that of a pen and an ink bottle.
The AML-chief further shared his confidence that he would get “record” number of votes from both of his Rawalpindi seats (NA-60 and NA-62).
Additionally, other political figures are also employed in unique election campaigning styles. Khursheed Shah—the ex-opposition leader in the National Assembly was seen contesting for the NA-206 (Sukkur) while riding a motorbike.
Arif Alvi—the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader was seen campaigning riding a rickshaw in the city of lights.
The most amazing of all was the campaigning style adopted by an independent candidate—Ayaz Memon Motiwala. He was seen posing inside a gutter, on a pile of garbage and even on sewage water. His photos went viral on social media and attracted local and foreign attention.
