New Delhi[India], Oct 16 (ANI): The Election Commission adjourned till October 23 the hearing on the AIADMK's two leaves symbol case.

Earlier, the AIADMK delegation met Election Commission officials and submitted documents regarding the case.

The poll panel has to decide which AIADMK faction should be allowed to use the two leaves party symbol.

The Supreme Court had asked the Election Commission to decide by November 10 on which of the two factions of the AIADMK should be allowed to use the symbol.

Earlier in September, the Election Commission rejected sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran's plea seeking 15 days additional grant to file affidavits in the party's two leaves symbol case.

Following the demise of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in December last year, a tug of war had broken out between the two factions over which is the real AIADMK.

Both the factions approached the Commission and asked that the official party symbol be given to it. (ANI)
