SC notice to EC on plea by TTV for common symbol

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Election Commission on a plea by T T V Dhinakaran and V K Sasikala for allotment of the symbol of 'pressure cooker' to the party led by them.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna put the matter for consideration on March 25.

The court agreed to examine their plea limited to the allotment of 'common symbol'.

Dhinakaran and Sasikala were represented by senior advocates Kapil Sibal and A M S Shinghvi.

They challenged validity of the February 28 Delhi High Court judgment which upheld the Election Commission decision to recognise the rival E K Palaniswami-O Panneerselvam faction as the 'real' AIADMK party worthy of the ‘two leaves’ election symbol.
