RAUB: When he found out candidates from his coalition of choice were coming to campaign, M. Bosveeran knew he must go and meet them.

The septuagenarian, who was still working as a security guard, came on his motorcycle to Taman Raub Jaya 3, where Barisan Nasional MCA's candidates were present to meet the residents.

He also brought with him old notebooks printed with pictures of then Raub MP, Tan Sri Dr Ng Yen Yen, laminated old newspaper cuttings, button badges bearing Barisan Nasional logo and slogan, and those bearing the face of Dr Ng back in the 90s.

As Bosveeran proudly showed off his collections to Barisan candidate Datuk Chong Sin Woon, he told Chong, "You from Barisan, you must win."

Chong, who was pleasantly surprised by Bosveeran's collections, said he was thankful for his long-time support to Barisan.

"His effort is wonderful and these items are truly memorable," said Chong.

And when Dr Ng arrived moments later, the former Raub MP was equally surprised to see his collections.

"It's amazing to see the collections, even though I don't keep some of these items.

"It's so nostalgic and I'm thankful for your support throughout the years," she said to Bosveeran.

Feeling happy, the 72-year-old said to both Dr Ng and Chong that he would cast his vote for Barisan.

He said he had been thankful for the aid and assistance given by the Wanita MCA representative throughout the years.

"I want my Barisan candidates to win in Raub," he said.

Dr Ng, who is a former MCA vice-president, was in Raub to campaign for Chong and Lim Teck Hoe, who was contesting the Tras state seat under Raub.

Reiterating that Raub needed change, Chong had called on the people to be brave and make a change this time.

"Raub gave 10 years to Pakatan. I think the people know better about their performance.

"Let's be brave and make a change this time, so that how we live for the next five years will be different," he said when addressing the residents.

Lim, who was from Tras and also Tras Chinese New Village chief, said he was focusing on meeting as many voters as possible through his daily campaigning.

He said there were still voters who did not know who their candidates were for the elections.

"I will take advantage of this gap to introduce myself and my aspiration to them," he said.
