Two more Putrajaya men with relatives in the office 

(TMI) – Relatives of some members of the Najib administration are on government payroll, in direct conflict with Putrajaya’s directive that these family members can only work in parliamentary constituencies.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim (pic) has a daughter working in his office while Agriculture and Agro-based Industry deputy minister Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman’s son-in-law works for him.

Shahidan declined to comment when asked by The Malaysian Insider.

“Nobody is talking about this and I also don’t want to talk about it,” he said when met at the Prime Minister’s Department’s Hari Raya open house in Putrajaya yesterday.

When pressed if his daughter Nur Shafizah was his principal private secretary, a “gazetted position”, Shahidan repeatedly said he did not want to talk about it.

“People should stop finding fault with me. I am already having a tough time in Parliament,” he said.
