Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa rebuked arch rival DMK's attempts to target "two leaves" and claimed her party's symbol had been instilling fear among the Karunanidhi outfit.

In her remark laced with sarcasm at an election rally here, the AIADMK supremo came down heavily on DMK petitioning Election Commission and the state High Court seeking to "mask" any sign or object that resembles "two leaves" in the run up to the April 24 Lok Sabha polls.

"Any thing viewed by jaundiced eyes looked yellowish and for DMK, which is struck by fear, whatever they see, it resembles two leaves," she quipped evoking thundering applause by the crowd.

Responding to a notice by the High Court on DMK's petition, Election Commission yesterday sought two days time to respond to the plea of covering all the objects and signs on mini buses resembling "two leaves" and also covering of the photographs of Jayalalithaa on "Amma" water bottles and cans.

Jayalalithaa wanted to know if DMK leader Stalin would submit petitions urging the authorities to direct use of gloves by people to mask the Congress' hand symbol.

"Will he give a petition seeking chopping of the hands of everyone,?"

Listing out other symbols like mango and bicycle, she asked if the DMK would demand ban on mangoes sale and end commute by bicycles.
