Madras HC directs EC to decide on AIADMK symbol dispute before Oct 31
A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud agreed to hear the plea at 2 pm.
Dinakaran's counsel V Singh said they sought to extend the deadline for settling the dispute over the party's two-leaves electoral symbol as they needed more time to go through about 20,000-pages documents filed by the rival faction and prepare their response.
He said the time was required to cross-examine some of the people who were earlier with Dinakaran but later went back on their statement.
