TN: Stalin, Dhinakaran target EC over symbols and assembly polls
| Tuesday | 26th March, 2019
"Even if we do not get a common symbol, our candidates will go ahead and file nominations as independents.
"Our request to SC for allotment of a common symbol is just.
We are confident that we will get the common symbol, when the issue comes before SC tomorrow, which is also the last day to file nominations," Dhinakaran said.
Justice A N Kanwilkar on February 7 has described the AMMK as a faction of the AIADMK and had asked the EC to consider allotting 'Pressure Cooker' as a common symbol.
"The whole nation now knows how impartial the EC is and it is supposed to be an independent constitutional body," Dhinakaran told reporters, after the EC told the Supreme Court that the AMMK was not a registered party for allotting a common symbol to its candidates.
