The year 2006 bring two new things to the local house of worship (HoW) in our Kampong, Pangkal Meleret, Machang, loving called Masjid Mukim Pangkal Meleret. Firstly the formation of a new committee. The norm has been people who are on the pension payroll by government standard will be elected to the committee. As such even among us, we have occasionally playfully dubbed the activities in the HoW especially the lectures as “pensioners course (kursus pencen)”. However we hope that with the new faces of young, thirty something in (CMs) committee members, will erase that image from the activities run by the HoW.

Second, the new face which include a serving official did bring in a new dynamism. They manage to get some funds to do up the HoW. Initiated by a young federal government officer in the CMs, HoW manage to secure a federal government grant of some RM180,000.00 to carry out the renovation works from JPP, Jabatan Pembangunan Persekutuan, a Federal Government Arm equivalent to the Federal Implementation and Coordination Unit. Thanks to that. These changes the previous years of piece meal maintenance like making new fences and improving the sanitary facilities
JPP was formed since PAS and Semangat 46 took over the state government. JPP was meant to channel funds directly from the federal government to JPP to finance development projects in his state, hence by passing the state government or institutions runs by state government. In Kelantan under what federal government termed it as 'opposition' rule, the JPP is seen as a state within state or a parallel government to the state government, pick your choice.
