AIADMK symbol fight: Dinakaran faction gets adjournment till Oct 30

| | New Delhi

The fight over the ‘Two Leaves’ symbol between rival factions of the AIADMK continued in the Election Commission on Monday with the TTV Dinakaran faction securing a further adjournment till October 30 (next Monday).

Lawyers arguing for the Dinakaran faction sought permission from the Commission for cross examination of some persons who they contended had given ‘fake’ documents swearing allegiance to the faction headed by O Panneerselvam, Thangatamil Selvan, a disqualified MLA and a supporter of Dinakaran, told reporters outside the Commission.

He said the Commission has adjourned hearing in the case till October 30, a day before the deadline for deciding the symbol case set by the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court expires.

KP Munusamy, a senior leader of the ruling AIADMK faction, said their side has given statements of over 1,000 functionaries including General Council members, MPs and MLAs, supporting the handing of the symbol to the faction headed by O Panneerselvam and Edappadi K Palanisamy.

He said since the rival side did not have such numbers in their support they were frustrated and indulging in attempts to delay the hearing in the case. “We hope a decision would be finalised by the next hearing,” he said.
