All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) is a breakaway faction of the parent party Dravida
Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) formed in 1972 by a veteran and popular Tamil film industry star, M.G Ramachandran, hero-worshipped famously as MGR. The AIADMK is a state party and has its mass base mainly in the state of Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Pondicherry. Its political position is centrist with an ideology of social democracy. AIADMK is one of the two prominent Dravidian political parties in India. It is said that MGR was initiated into the mould of politics by Annadurai, the then-President of DMK. So inspired was MGR with Annadurai’s ideology, that he became instrumental in the DMK coming to power in Tamil Nadu in 1967. But soon after, with Annadurai’s death, M. Karunanidhi was elected the party President of the DMK and CM of Tamil Nadu eventually, in 1969.

Major political and administrative differences started widening the gulf between Karunanidhi and MGR. Within a very short time span, MGR formed his own political party under the name AIADMK. With his calibre and aura, the people of Tamil Nadu increasingly aligned with MGR, popularly referred as Puratchi Thalaivar (Revolutionary Leader). Soon, the DMK was being charged with corruption-allegations from the other state parties as well as from the Centre in Delhi. MGR from AIADMK was elected as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu in 1977, and ruled for a period of 10 years, winning many hearts and minds of the common people. With his death, there was a succession crisis over who would become the president of AIADMK—MGR’s wife, famous Tamil star Janaki Ramachandran or former Tamil film star-turned-politician Ms. J. Jayalalithaa. Due to this crisis in

the internal realms of the party and due to the absence of the political dynamism of MGR, the DMK rose to power in the state assembly elections of 1989, almost after a period of 12 years. With this eminent danger in sight, the AIADMK resolved its internal issue and swept back to power in the 1991 Tamil Nadu assembly elections. The present President of AIADMK and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is Jayalalithaaa. The party head-quarters is at Royapettah, Chennai.

Election Symbol and its Significance


The Election Symbol of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam is "two leaves". This symbol has a prominent history. When MGR died in 1987 and the major clash over taking-over the AIADMK began between Janaki Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa, the Election Commission of India refused to recognize both these factions of the AIADMK as a true successor of MGR. As a result, separate electoral 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".

However, with the party breaking up further and the DMK’s rise to power, the crisis was resolved and Jayalalithaa restored the "two leaves" symbol of the AIADMK in 1989. The symbol is supposed to indicate that Jayalalithaa, lovingly called Amma, is two times the magnificence of other leaders. In other words, Jayalalithaa specifically or any other leader of the AIADMK, will work double for its people, as compared to other leaders or parties. Thus, the people can attest immense faith in the AIADMK and its leader, for the betterment of the state.
