Shamsul aims to uplift Bagan Datuk, says development differs significantly from Selangor

SHAH ALAM, Nov 14 — Pakatan Harapan (Harapan) candidate for Bagan Datuk parliamentary seat Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mat Akin has questioned the progress achieved in the constituency, which has been a Barisan Nasional (BN) stronghold for 27 years, represented by its incumbent Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Citing Selangor as an example, Shamsul Iskandar said that the development in the state under the Harapan administration differs significantly compared to Bagan Datuk.

“If we were to compare to the development in Selangor and what has been done by the Bagan Datuk MP for 27 years, it differs like ‘heaven and earth’,” he said recently on a Facebook post.

Shamsul Iskandar that if granted the people’s mandate in the upcoming 15th general election (GE15), he aims to uplift the constituency and bring down the Umno president on November 19.

Meanwhile, the former Parti Keadilan Rakyat information chief expressed his disappointment over the actions of the BN supporters who had attacked using foul language during an election campaign at Hutan Melintang, which was attended by local celebrity Datuk Afdlin Shauki, yesterday.

He said that the incident showed how anxious BN is over the prospect of another party gaining control of the parliamentary seat.

“After 27 years, enough is enough. For the sake of change and the future generation, the voters of P075 (Bagan Datuk) should choose candidate number three,” he said.

Shamsul Iskandar will be contesting against Zahid, Perikatan Nasional’s Dr Faiz Na’aman and Independent candidate Tawfik Tun Dr Ismail (Bebas).
