Poll symbol fight: EC allots hat to Sasikala camp, Panneerselvam team gets electricity pole

Putting a pause to the fight between two factions of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), the Election Commission on Thursday allotted 'hat' symbol to Sasikala-led team with name 'AIADMK Amma' while the camp headed by Panneerselvam got 'electricity pole' as their poll symbol, with name 'AIADMK Puratchi Thalaivi Amma.' The EC said that it has delivered a temporary verdict, giving time to both the factions to submit extra documents by April 17. Sasikala's supporter and senior leader M. Thambidurai pinned hope that the team will be allotted 'two leaves' symbol in the next hearing. Earlier, the Election Commission had frozen All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's (AIADMK) party symbol of 'two leaves'.
