Election 2018: Candidates use innovative ways


ISLAMABAD: As election fever grips people, electoral candidates have come up with unique ways to motivate and capture the attention of the masses. From posing on top of a garbage pile to driving rickshaws around the city, the candidates have shown that they are willing to do anything to sway the voters.  Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed kicked off his election campaign on the back of a motorbike. Former opposition leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah also launched his campaign in Pannu Aqil while riding a motorcycle. The pictures of the campaign even emerged on social media. PTI leader Arif Alvi took his campaign drive to a next level after he rode a rickshaw in Karachi. Ayaz Memon Motiwala, an independent candidate in a bid to raise awareness regarding unhygienic conditions and dysfunctional sewage systems of Karachi, has posed inside a gutter.
