Khusrin: I have no political agenda

SHAH ALAM, Jan 3 — New Selangor state secretary Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi today moved to refute claims that his hotly-contested appointment was “politically-motivated.”

The controversial former Selangor Islamic department (Jais) director stressed that he would carry out his duties despite direct opposition from the ruling state government over his appointment.

“All the accusations against me have been personal attacks. My appointment is legitimate, it’s just that what I have yet to do is to take an oath of secrecy in front of the Selangor MB,” said Khusrin today.

Despite a growing row over his appointment, Khusrin maintained that he would not budge from his post unless and until he received instructions from the federal government to do so.

“As long as there have been no orders on a federal level, I will remain as state secretary,” he said.

According to Khusrin, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has yet to notify him of the date for him to take his oath.

“I have written a letter to the MB this morning, and have even called his political secretary. I have not received any details regarding the details of my oath of secrecy session with the MB.

“But this is not a problem, I can still work as state secretary without taking the oath,” he said.

Selangor’s top civil servant also denied allegations that he had not earned enough remuneration points to “qualify” for the state secretary’s post.

“I was appointed by the Public Services Department. I am sure they have their reasons for appointing me. As a civil servant I know the rules and I am aware of what I can or cannot do.

“I have no political agenda and my job is to assist the state government machinery to do its best and ensure that the relationship between the executive and the administrative remains good,” he added.
