Thiruvananthapuram: Youth Congress state
committee member Jaya Dali on Sunday resigned from the
organisation to contest as an independent candidate from the
Kattakkada segment in the district in the coming
assembly elections.

Addressing reporters here, she said Congress was giving
away tickets only to undeserving candidates and flayed the
party`s decision to field N Sakthan, who was facing several
charges, from Kattakkada.
She said the party leaders had failed to keep their promise
to give more representation to women and youth while selecting
candidates.
Dali is likely to get the support of LDF, which has
reportedly decided to withdraw its candidate Sheela Ramani
from the fray following opposition from party functionaries in
the segment, sources said.
