For Awami Muslim League chairman Sheikh Rasheed, election is not just a time to go on a campaign asking for votes, it's also the time to meet members of his constituency, and, if time permits, bake rotis with them.

The National Assembly veteran from Rawalpindi has been meeting with constituents and taking pictures with laymen on the street to raise support for the upcoming Pakistan elections, which take place in less than two weeks.

A few days ago, the politician, who is a lawyer by education, was seen touring for his campaign on a motorcycle, drumming up support.

The new video on his Twitter account shows him making traditional rotis in a tandoor, to the applause of this supporters.

People can be heard clapping for the politician, rejoicing in his skills in making the delicious bread.
