We did mention on our news dated 19/3/17 that the Election Commission may withhold the party symbol of ADMK in its upcoming bypoll election in the RK Nagar constituency.
As expected, the EC did withheld the symbol citing that they are convinced that there are two groups within the same party. It also said that the provision of not using the party’s symbol of two leaves is applicable only for the RK Nagar bypoll.
This essentially means neither of the factions – TTV Dinakaran or OPS will have the right to use the party name or the symbol in the upcoming bypoll in RK Nagar Constituency which is lying vacant since the demise of the late CM Dr J Jayalalithaa. It would be real tough fight between the various political parties which has fielded its representatives to give a tough fight and to demolish the political dreams and aspirations of Mr TTV Dinakaran who is touted to be the front runner for the post of Chief Minister once elected from this constituency.
