The battle for RK Nagar constituency has become more interesting (and comic) with the Election Commission freezing the AIADMK's 'Two Leaves' symbol and asking the contestants to go with new ones.

TTV Dhinakaran from the Sasikala camp and E Madhusudhanan from the O Panneerselvam faction had both staked claim to the party name and symbol. However, with the EC's move, both of them will now be fighting for RK Nagar with new symbols - a hat for TTV and an electric pole for E Madhusudhanan.
This is how popular Twitter user Ramesh Srivats put it:
The meme generators got into work immediately. The "thoppi" especially seems to have caught their fancy, given that there is palpable anger against the Sasikala family in the state.
Social media users were quick to compare this scene from Dhanush's Velaiyilla Pattadhari which has Dhanush and his supporters speaking to the media with TTV and group.
When comedy comes, can Vadivelu be far behind?

And let's not forget that there are other players in Tamil Nadu. Captain gets some competition!
Even Rajinikanth finds the "thoppi" hilarious. Remember this scene from Chandramukhi  when a minister's turban falls as the cruel Rajini avatar walks into the durbar? His villainous cackle seems to be made for the situation in TN.

The 'hat' is funny even if you match it with your clothes, the TN public says.

Even if you wear it with 'Sasi' swag.
