Expelled AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam -- who precipitated a crisis in the party after his rebellion against VK Sasikala -- has said the party's election symbol should belong to his faction. By-elections in Chennai's RK Nagar constituency, which had been held by J Jayalalithaa, will be held on April 12. The rebel leader, who has got a handful of supporters within the party, says he will meet the Election Commission at noon tomorrow. His faction, he said, is the "original" AIADMK and should have the two-leaf election symbol, which is the party's biggest asset.
