[Anglican Journal] General Synod, the governing body of the Anglican Church of Canada, ended 2011 with a deficit of CAN$65,000 (US$63,414), due to a decline in expected revenue of CAN$808,000 (US$788,288), according to Treasurer Michele George.Reviewing General Synod’s financial results for 2011 at the spring meeting here of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), George explained that the budget of CAN$12 million (US$11.71 million) had planned for a surplus of CAN$18,000 (US$17,557). Instead, a loss on investments, a decline in proportional giving from dioceses and lower than anticipated results from annual appeals led to a shortfall.General Synod was able to use 20% of CAN$2 million (US$1.95 million) in undesignated legacies to help cover the shortfall, George told delegates.The 2011 results show that budgeting revenue remains a challenge for General Synod, said George, adding that, “We’re clearly struggling at the moment.” Although General Synod has always budgeted conservatively when it comes to investment income, this year, it is being “more diligent” in monitoring revenue. If necessary, other sources of funding may need to be identified or work deferred, she said.“Resources for Mission, particularly the annual appeals, were disappointing and resulted in a shortfall of CAN$752,000 (US$733,443),” according to the financial management committee report to CoGS. The shortfall was partially cushioned by a reserve of $200,000 and partly from undesignated legacies.Proportional giving fell short of budget by CAN$273,000 (US$266,262), but part of the loss was cushioned by another reserve of CAN$200,000 (US$195,064), according to the financial management committee report to CoGS.The continued volatility of global investment markets resulted in a loss of more than CAN$300,000 (US$292,622) in market value of the investments, the report added. The 2011 budget had anticipated more than CAN$150,000 (US$146,318) in investment revenue but instead lost CAN$164,000 (US$159,974). “We were off budget by CAN$83,000 (US$80,974),” George said in an interview.Vianney (Sam) Carriere, director of resources for mission, said that one of several possible reasons for the under-performance of the Anglican Appeal was that “the original estimate of the revenues may have been too high.” He pointed out that the other fundraising campaigns in the national church, including the Anglican Journal Appeal and the Gifts for Mission catalog, met their targets in 2011.The good news, said Carriere, who is also director of communications and information resources, is that the Anglican Appeal campaign already appears to be ahead of its target for this year. “So we’re hoping that last year was a blip and that we’ll recover.” In addition, efforts are underway to strengthen all three fundraising campaigns through the integration of campaign staff and resources. “Hopefully it will pay off,” said Carriere.The council, in three separate resolutions, approved the 2011 financial statements of General Synod, the Consolidated Trust Fund, and the Resolution Corporation.— Marites N.

Shobha Oza,Congress spokesperson said Digvijaya Singh took a more diplomatic line and feigned ignorance about the entire matter initially However he denied that Rahul Gandhi andSonia Gandhi had ever

said 1:10 pm: Natarajan says she wishes the Congress well Natarajan refused to get drawn into a discussion on whether the Prime Minister was in control of the government and its policies She however

had not received an appointment at any point The minister said that many ministers in the cabinet had sought that environment laws should be made easy to allow investment but she had decided to stick to the party’s line on tribals and forest rights She maintained that she didn’t think it was the right idea to attack Modi on the ‘Snoopgate’ issue and had done so only because she was a loyal servant of the party 1:00 pm: Modi justified in attacking me why did my party mistreat me says Natarajan She refuted allegations that she had been blackmailed to hold the press conference before the Delhi polls "I have no connection with any corporate" she said She refused to lay the blame on any leader and said she was a small functionary Natarajan said that no matter who had been environment minister if they had been asked to resign just 100 days before the polls it would have been assumed that person was corrupt "Why was I removed I still don’t have an answer" she said She said she was not accusing anyone of corruption and said that the Modi government was free to investigate her case "Mr Modi was in the opposition and was justified in attacking me I attacked him But why did my own party treat me this way" Natarajan said She said she would welcome a CBI probe against her 12:55 pm: Won’t be joining any other political party says Natarajan The former minister said there wasn’t any interference but she had merely followed the directives of the party and hadn’t done anything wrong "Whether Rahul Gandhi requested me or not I only followed the rules I was told in some cases there in no situation should there be environmental degradation and I took a hard line" she said Natarajan said she now planned to think about her life and future but had no intention of joining any party 12:50 pm: Natarajan quits Congress says no internal democracy in party Natarajan said that she had then been dropped from the list of the party’s spokespersons She also clarified that she had no issue with the state unit of the party She said that she had seen Rahul Gandhi’s speech at a Ficci conclave where he promised environmental clearances to industrialists and had written an impassioned letter to Gandhi asking him why he had said that "He replied saying ‘I am busy right now will talk to you later’ but that never materialised" she said She also questioned why the party’s leaders had been allowed to sully her reputation "Why was everyone able to ruin my reputation" Natarajan said adding that she had decided to go to the media since there was no internal democracy in the party "If anyone is able to show I did anything wrong then I am ready to be hanged Or go to jail" she said And then she dropped the bombshell "Today I announce my resignation from the primary membership of the Congress" she said adding that it meant that she no longer held any post in the party 12:45 pm: Didn’t want to attack Modi on Snoopgate says Natarajan She said that while she was travelling she was called by Ajay Maken to attack Narendra Modi on the ‘Snoopgate’ controversy "I said we should attack him on policy and not issues such as this But he said that it was a decision from the highest level" Natarajan said She said that the PM had called her to his office soon after "He looked very grim He said ‘Madam has said you are required for party work’" she said adding that he had then told her to resign She said she tendered her resignation and had even contacted Sonia Gandhi who said that she was required for party work Natarajan said that after that allegations of wrongdoing were spread after that She said she had sought to counter the charges but was told not to by Congress president Sonia Gandhi 12:40 pm: Rahul Gandhi’s office sent letters from NGOs on environment damage says Natarajan Natarajan said she had been taught to follow the rule of law at all times but after she had become the environment minister she had received many letters from the office of Rahul Gandhi from NGOs seeking to highlight environmental damage "I was asked by his office and him to ensure environment was protected at all costs.I did my duty I did due diligence and some of them I had stopped" she said She said there had been many heated discussions in the Cabinet and she had faced their wrath Among the projects that had been stalled were the Niyamgiri project by Vedanta the Nirma plant and the Adani project she said "Specifically on the Adani project there were many letters from NGOs on environment violations" Natarajan said "I was a good environment minister" she said 12:30 pm: Jayanthi Natarajan says Congress no longer the party she had joined After a brief scramble for a mic Natarajan started her press conference by thanking the media for attending the press conference She said was not intending to hold a press conference but had done so after her letter had appeared in the press she had decided to hold it She acknowledged the letter had been written by her "It is an extremely painful and heart rending day for me since my family has been associated with the Congress since its inception" she said adding that she was a fourth generation member of the Congress She said she had decided to rethink her position in the Congress since the party that she had joined with ideals had changed considerably Natarajan thanked the party for giving her the opportunity to represent the party in the Rajya Sabha and pointed out she had served the nation and the party ‘without blemish’ "I serve the nation and party with tremendous dedication" she said 12:00 pm: Veerappa Moily defends Rahul Gandhi While we wait for the former environment minister’s press conference her successor at the ministry Veerappa Moily has defended the Congress and its vice president "It looks stage managed" he told Times Now 10:15 am: Congress’s PC Chacko wishes Natrajan all the best Congress’s PC Chacko has said that Natarajan is welcome to leave and the party had seen many people leave before and had survived it He also denied that allegations she had levelled against the party and speaking to Times Now said that she was in a prominent enough position to have her concerns addressed AFP image 10:00 am: Jaitley says Natarajan’s exit proof of party interfering in the government Natarajan’s letter to Sonia Gandhi "conclusively establishes" that it was not the statutory or mandatory considerations which weighed with the Congress but only "whims" of the leaders the Finance Minister charged "I hope the Environmental ministry now will go into each of these permissions which were granted and not granted and make sure that these are expeditiously dealt with only as per law and no other consideration" Jaitley said He said Natarajan’s letter "conclusively establishes" that it was not the statutory or mandatory considerations which weighed with the ruling party "But what weighed with them was the whims of political leaders of the party as to who is to be granted environmental permission and who is not to be granted an environmental permission" the Finance Minister said In a scenario where whims overtake legal requirements it becomes a textbook case of "crony capitalism which the UPA was practising" he said 9:00 am: Natarajan set to quit Congress explosive letter against Rahul Gandhi leaked In a major embarrassment for the Congress party days ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls Jayanthi Natarajan who was sacked as Environment minister three months ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls has quit the Congress after what she terms has been a period of ‘excruciating mental agony and public humiliation’ The NDTV channel confirmed that Natarajan had resigned following media reports that the veteran Congress leader was unhappy at how the party completely sidelined her and have not yet given her a reason for why she was asked to step down as minister a day ahead of Rahul Gandhi’s address to FICCI where he assured industrial leaders that the government would ensure a investor-friendly environment In a November 2014 letter addressed to Congress President Sonia Gandhi that has been exclusively accessed by The Hindu Natarajan slammed the Congress chief as well as party vice president Rahul Gandhi saying his officers planted stories against her in the media immediately after she quit the cabinet in 2013 saying her resignation was not for ‘party work’ as officially stated Writing that she trusted Sonia with her entire life and not for a moment did she think twice about resigning when asked to work for the party Natarajan questioned the Congress chief over why she has been constantly refused a party position and even sacked as an official spokesperson and not allowed to speak to the media Read more here
