In 1987, MGR died and, the major clash begins in AIADMK party for taking over the leadership between Janaki Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa, the Election Commission of India refused to recognise both these factions of the AIADMK as a true successor of MGR.
As a result, separate electoral AIADMK symbols were assigned to both these groups. The Janaki Ramachandran faction was allotted the symbol of “two doves”, and the Jayalalithaa faction was allotted the symbol of “crowing cock”.
Further, the party breaks up and the DMK’s rise to power, the crisis was resolved. In 1989, Jayalalithaa restored the “two leaves” symbol of the AIADMK. The AIADMK symbol is supposed to indicate that Jayalalithaa, mostly called as Amma, is two times the magnificence of other leaders.
