DAP: Zahrain angry over golf club tender

(Bernama) –  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.

He added the state DAP and all its representatives fully supported the continued leadership of Lim as the chief minister.

News reports quoted Zahrain, who is the Bayan Baru MP, as accusing Lim of being a “dictator, a chauvinist and communist-minded.”
