Delhi Police has issued a lookout notice against AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran, accused of bribing an Election Commission official to get the coveted ‘two-leaves’ symbol for his faction. Police said, the action comes in the wake of inputs that Dhinakaran is an NRI and can try to flee and immigration officials have been alerted.
AIADMK (Amma) Deputy General Secretary Dinakaran is already facing the heat as the K Palaniswami cabinet revolted against him and decided to keep him and his family out of the party and the government. Dhinakaran has convened a meeting of party MLAs in Chennai today.
Earlier, an alleged middleman, Sukesh Chandrashekhar had been arrested in this matter. The middleman told Dhinakaran that he has contacts in the Election Commission and his contacts will help the Sasikala faction get the AIADMK’s poll symbol of two leaves in a by-election to the RK Nagar Assembly seat in Tamil Nadu.
