The Delhi High Court on Tuesday (February 6) directed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami, Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and Election Commission of India (ECI) to file counter replies in the two leaf symbol’s main matter within three days.
The Court also fixed the T T V Dhinakaran’s (AIADMK leader VK Sasikala’s nephew) plea seeking pressure cooker symbol and suitable name for his faction for civic polls to February 15 and tagged this matter with two leaf symbol’s matter.
Dhinakaran had won R K Nagar bypoll as an independent candidate in December 2017.
Dhinakaran had challenged the ECI order of awarding two leaf symbol to the faction led by Chief Minister O Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.
