In the latest twist to the tale, Sasikala camp is holding a legislature party meeting in Golden Bay resort now.
The MLAs have been asked to choose a new legislature party leader and Sasi is likely to tell the Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao that she will not be CM candidate, sources privy to the development told media.
KA Sengottaiyan or Edapady Palanisamy are the frontrunners as the next leader. Both are Sasi loyalists, the source added.
Earlier, AIADMK interim General Secretary VK Sasikala reached the Golden bay resort in Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu and met the 'captive MLAs' who might be paraded in front of the Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao's residence.
Earlier, Sasikala wrote to Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao seeking an appointment to parade all the MLAs loyal to her and prove her majority.
