Expressing confidence that the AIADMK faction led by Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami will be able to retrieve the party’s ‘two leaves’ symbol, Dairy Development Minister K.T. Rajenthra Bhalaji said on Friday that “nobody can shake” the AIADMK as long as Prime Minister Narendra Modi “supports the party”.

Claiming that 92% of the general council members supported the Palaniswami camp, he said: “The symbol will come to EPS camp... there is no doubt about it.”

He asserted that no one could oppose the ruling AIADMK, including the DMK.
