The two leaves symbol of the Tamil Nadu based party AIADMK has been frozen by the Election Commission of India. While this news has not affected the Sasikala faction, Panneerselvam’s camp has said that they would fight for it to be restored to them. In the mean time, commenting on this issue, DMK party leader Sarvanan has said that this was due to the illegal actions of the power hungry Sasikala faction. He also expressed his confidence about DMK emerging victorious in the by-elections. Election Commission has asked the two factions to choose a new symbol for the upcoming election.
