KARACHI, Pakistan

A Karachi politician has deployed an unusual campaign technique to garner votes in advance of the country's general election this month.

Ayaz Memon Motiwala, an independent candidate, has been filmed sitting down in sewage water and occupying garbage dumps to draw attention to faulty watewater systems and unhygenic conditions in the city.

Images of the Motiwala wearing a shalwar kameez and sitting in a pool of water having tea and taking a nap went viral in social media.
