"... Zahrain is President of Bukit Jambul Golf & Country Club, which is Penang State-owned.
When Lim Guan Eng insisted on an open tender for the maintenance job (worth a total of RM3 million per year) and over rode his selection of his friend’s RM2 company, Zahrain’s fuse blew!
His first reaction was to demand (together with Balik Pulau MP Yusmaidi Yusuff) that the Chief Minister’s post be rotated between DAP and PKR.
Ask Zahrain,as President of Football Assn of Penang (FAP) how the firm for raising funds for the football assn was selected?
And how big a fraction of the fund collected is paid to the contractor.
Better still, ask him who is the contractor?
Ask Zahrain what has he done for foorball in Penang especially the programme for the schools and youth to spot and nurture the young talents to be state footballers?.."
Penang DAP said today the recent outburst of former state PKR chairman Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohd Hashim against Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng could be due to personal reasons.
Its chairman Chow Kon Yeow said he believed that Zahrain was frustrated over Lim’s refusal to endorse a tender for the Management of Bukit Jambul Golf Club to a company.
“Lim informed me Zahrain is not happy with the state government for refusing to endorse the company to run the management of the golf club,” he said.
Chow said Zahrain was also unhappy over his removal as the state PKR chairman.

Bayan Baru (PENANG) PKR MP Zahrain Hashim called Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng from DAP -- ‘Communist-minded.
He blames the current defection speculations among PKR MPs on the party's submissiveness to DAP's political demands. He said the current PKR representatives in the state Pakatan government were meekly giving in to DAP at the expense of party interests, rights and benefits.
Zahrain claims that the majority of PKR's elected representatives and members, especially from Penang, were frustrated with their party's subservient attitude to Pakatan Rakyat ally DAP.
Their anger, he alleges, was more towards DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
