Ousted AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran has been allotted 'pressure cooker' symbol to contest upcoming RK Nagar bypoll.
After being allotted the symbol by the Election Commission (EC) on Thursday, Dhinakaran campaigned in the legislative constituency, whose seat has been lying vacant following the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in December 2016.
The EC allocated the 'hat' symbol, demanded by Dhinakaran, who is contesting the poll as an Independent candidate, to another party.
The bye-election of RK Nagar assembly constituency will take place on December 21.
