New Delhi: T.T.V. Dhinakaran, leader of the ‘unrecognized’ AIADMK faction, moved the Delhi high court on Wednesday seeking permission to function under a different party name and symbol, till the dispute over the use of AIADMK name and ‘two-leaves’ party symbol between the two AIADMK factions is decided by the court.

The permission to use a different name and symbol was sought for Tamil Nadu local body elections that are expected to be notified soon, without prejudicing Dhinakaran’s claim over the ‘two-leaves’ symbol and AIADMK party name.

The Court directed the Election Commission to file a reply to Dhinakaran’s plea and listed the matter for further hearing on 6 February. A notice was issued to Tamil Nadu chief minister E.K. Palaniswami and his deputy O. Panneerselvam as well.
