AIADMK factions file documents with Election Commission

New Delhi, Sep 29: The unified AIADMK factions on Friday submitted documents with the Election Commission, claiming that it has the support of party’s leaders for the name and the “Two Leaves” symbol.

Bundle of documents were filed by the faction headed by Edappadi Palaniswamy and O. Panneerselvam purporting to be statements by General Council members, MPs and MLAs to support their claim to regain party symbol which has been frozen in the wake of the split in the party after the demise  of Jayalalithaa.

Tamil Nadu Finance Minister D. Jayakumar and one of the leaders of the faction, K.P. Munusamy, told media  that they were confident that the “Two Leaves” symbol would come to their faction because of the “100 per cent” support of the General Council members. The letters of support from whatever number of MPs, MLAs and General Council needed for bagging the symbol have been given.

The faction was accompanied by Law Minister C.V. Shanmugham, Rajya Sabha member V. Maitreyan and party leader and lawyer Manoj Pandian.

Meanwhile,  opposition faction led by T.T.V.Dinakaran also submitted documents on Friday after the Commission dismissed its plea for giving 15 days more time for filing papers.

The counsel for the faction, Raja Sendoorpandi, informed that 54 volumes of documents were filed with the Commission and three days more time has been demanded for submitting documents of leaders from some of the 55 districts.
