Thank You Shaziman Abu Mansor, you can't be DROPPED
Contrary to popular belief and inaccurate news reports, Tampin Member of Parliament since 1999 Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansor was not DROPPED from PM Najib Razak's 2013 cabinet. Shaziman, the Works Minister in the previous cabinet, was not DROPPED but the true gentleman of a politician opted to remain as an ordinary MP on his own will. In fact, I was made to understand that the 49 year old Civil Engineer was even reluctant to defend his Tampin parliamentary seat and was ready to allow other capable leaders from his Umno Division to contest in the recently concluded GE. He was persuaded to defend Tampin. Why this remarkable young politicians with an untainted track record chose to pull the hand brake is anybody's guess but he was certainly not sulking or demanding higher positions in the party or the government. Shaziman may be young, indeed very young in political age, but his uncommon decision will certainly put many other politicians to shame. His understanding of politics and his sincerity in serving the rakyat will certainly put many dead wood warlords to shame (if they have any left). Well, I just wanted to drive home the fact that Shaziman was NOT dropped from the cabinet. He opted out of the cabinet in a very honorable manner at a time when other lesser politicians are trying or holding the PM at ransom for perks and positions. Tampin folks should stand tall and be proud, for you have a true leader who is not bound by perks or positions. THANK YOU for your service to this nation as a member of the cabinet Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansur, you have done Tampin proud.
p/s Those sulking, merajuk-king, sabotaging, crying, foot thumping politicians could seek Shaziman's help to nurture them to be better human beings since the Tampin MP would have much free time now...after his fairways and greens.
