Many were unaware of his hidden skill. The video quickly went popular on social media.
Taking to Twitter, the politician said: "After the cultural programme by Doordarshan Srinagar for the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology, I was persuaded to sing for the members. Unrehearsed and amateur but do enjoy it."
