According to media reports, Shamim is cooperative affairs secretary of the JL as well as vice president of Awami League (AL) Narayanganj district unit.
On information, he started his political career as an activist of Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal, youth front of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).
Shamim, once a close associate of BNP leader Mirza Abbas, was a vice president of the Jubo Dal central committee.
Later, when the AL came to power in 2009 through the 2008 general election, he started to change his colour and joined AL youth wing Jubo League using his influence of money and arms men.
