Sindhu Joy, former SFI State president who had migrated from the CPM to the Congress during the run-up to the last Assembly polls causing a stir in state politics, and who was rewarded with the post of chairperson of a newly-formed State Youth Commission by the UDF Government, has resigned from the post.

 Assigning personal reasons, Sindhu also maintained that her decision was also influenced by the fact that the commission was yet to take off due to various reasons.

Other members to the commission have not been nominated and even an ordinance to form the commission was issued only recently.

Sindhu’s nomination as chairperson had ruffled many a feather in the faction- ridden Congress, with many Youth Congress leaders, especially women, making their displeasure known to party higher-ups.
