Team OPS asked the Election Commission to disallow team Sasikala from using the AIADMK office
The O Panneerselvam camp today approached the Election Commission urging it to restrain the VK Sasikala faction from using the AIADMK office. The counsel for the Panneerselvam camp also submitted fresh documents to the poll panel against the elevation of Ms Sasikala as the interim general secretary of the party, an Election Commission official said.
Besides urging the Election Commission to restrain the Sasikala faction from using the party office, team Panneerselvam said that till the time the case is settled between the two camps over the control of the party, AIADMK mouthpiece 'Dr Namadhu MGR' should not remain under the control of Ms Sasikala.
The Election Commission had on March 23 issued an interim order freezing the 'two leaves' election symbol of AIADMK, saying the rival camps cannot use the party symbol as well as its name for the prestigious RK Nagar assembly bypoll.
The bypoll has since been cancelled following allegations that money was used to buy votes. A fresh date is yet to be announced.
Last month, the Election Commission had extended its order of freezing the name and symbol of the party till the case is settled.
