New Delhi:

AIADMK MP (EPS-OPS faction) V Maitreyan on Thursday claimed that the two leaves symbol has been allotted to them by the Election Commission and they are waiting for the order in writing.

“Waiting for the hard copy but got information from EC orally that the two leaves symbol has been allotted to us,” V Maitreyan said.

Rejoicing over the decision, Tamil Nadu CM E Palaniswami said EC has given a favourable judgement as he enjoys support of majority of party workers.

“EC has given judgement in our favour, we are very happy. Majority of party workers supported us,” Palaniswami said.

When asked whether proximity with the BJP helped tilt the decision in their favour CM Palaniswami said, ”It is wrong. We had facts on our side and majority of MLAs, MPs and party workers were with us.”
