Dhinakaran, who was campaigning in Arakkonam Lok Sabha consittuency on Friday held a model of the 'gift pack' symbol in his hand.
The 'gift pack' resembled a scheme launched by Amma (J Jayalalithaa) in 2016, where several goodies were gift wrapped in a box and given to a new born girl child in government hospitals.
I immediately opted for the 'gift box' symbol and EC too had communicated later in the night, confirming the symbol to us," AMMK deputy general secretary T T V Dhinakaran told reporters in Kancheepuram.
With elections just about 20 days away, AMMK has the hard task to reach the new symbol to the masses.
By virtue of representing an unregistered party, the AMMK candidates will, however, be treated as independents and the symbol on EVMs too will appear accordingly, well after the national and regional recognized parties.
