The allegation that the ‘Two Leaves’ symbol has been painted on ‘Small Buses’ is being looked into by the Election Commission, its counsel informed the Madras High Court on Monday.

DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin had filed a petition seeking a direction to the EC to cover Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s photograph and the AIADMK symbol printed on government property, including Small Buses and water bottles sold in the name of “Amma mineral Water.”

When the petition filed in view of the coming Lok Sabha elections came up before Justice T. Raja, EC counsel G. Rajagopalan submitted that the authorities themselves had already removed the photo of the Chief Minister from the mineral water bottles. The matter on the alleged printing of the ‘Two Leaves’ symbol on Small Buses was under consideration by the EC.
