New Delhi: The Election Commission on Friday issued a show cause notice to the O Panneerselvam faction for allegedly peddling the 'electric pole' symbol as the AIADMK's original symbol of 'two leaves'.

The Commission's notice came after complaint from the AIADMK's V K Sasikala faction which alleged that the Panneerselvam camp was projecting its electric pole symbol as two leaves symbol to mislead voters.

The Commission had itself carried out investigations before issuing the notice.

"Now, therefore, the Commission has decided to afford you an opportunity to explain your position in the matter," the notice said. It has sought a reply by April 3 morning.

Rival AIADMK factions were alloted new symbols and names after the poll panel had barred them from using the undivided party's "two leaves" symbol for the Chennai's R K Nagar assembly bypoll.

While Sasikala camp will contest on the "hat" symbol as AIADMK (Amma), the O Panneerselvam camp is using the 'electric pole' symbol and will be called AIADMK (Puratchithalaivi Amma).

E Madhusudhanan of the OPS camp today filed his nomination at R K Nagar.T T V Dinakaran of the Sasikala faction and Maruthu Ganesh of DMK will also be contesting the bypoll.
