Why Lulu Thinks Being The President of Selangor Badminton Association is Important To Zakaria

Zakaria and his team were ousted not once but twice in the recently held Selangor Badminton Association biennial general meeting.
Instead of recognising that he is not wanted there anymore, Zakaria twice threatened to use his political connections to oust the current executive council.

The new team aka Subramaniam’s team were elected in a BGM which was held on Dec 9, 2006, kicking out the office bearers led by Zakaria.
Then comes someone with a political connection (don't know if it's a coincidence) and asked them to postpone the BGM, citing an oral request by Zakaria and pressure from certain quarters.
He (Elyas Omar) had then written to Subramaniam on Feb 27, 2007 to say that since the BGM was not put off, it was thus invalid.
Follow so far?
As a result, a separate BGM was held on that stipulated date and those who were voted in on Dec 9th still won. This means Subramaniam’s team had oust Zakaria’s team once again.

Dua kali bertanding, dua kali kalah.
Sad to say, "political intervention" was still not willing to let go.
On two occasions - in July 26 and Dec 11- Elyas had met with the newly elected office bearers and asked for the BGM to be held again

Why is Zakaria so keen on holding on to the presidency?
Does he love the game so much?
Does he think that it could further some youth's life like how it did for the Sidek brothers?
Does he have plans to use the game to promote a healty lifestyle for the people of Selangor?
Do cows jump over the moon?

The answer, Lulu suspects, lies in this piece of seven acre land in Section 7, Phase 3B, Shah Alam applied by the Selangor Badminton Association and approved by the PKNS. And our friend Zak is the PKNS land committee which approved the application.
Poor Zak miscalculated, lost hold of the SBAM presidency and with it, the land worth RM6,133,834.20.

this sounds consistent considering the Selangor Chief Minister already said there is no more land to allocate in Selangor...

Does he think that it could further some youth's life like how it did for the Sidek brothers?

man... is a wanting animal, perpetually.

moment one of his needs is satisfied, another appears to replace it.

the process of lusting one after another needs continues from birth to his last breath... and a probable cause to multitude of problems/violence in the world...
