Chennai: Amid desertions by some key leaders, AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala today held discussions with party MLAs supporting her at a resort near here.
In the hour-long meeting, she held discussions on the “next course of action”, party-backed Jaya Plus TV Channel said.
Sasikala’s meeting with the MLAs came hours after she shot off a letter to Governor Vidyasagar Rao seeking appointment by today to meet him along with the legislators supporting her for government formation.
Sasikala’s meeting with her supporting MLAs came even as two Lok Sabha MPs and the AIADMK spokesperson left her camp to join Panneerselvam’s side.
Last week, she had been elected AIADMK Legislature Party Leader, the first step towards becoming the Chief Minister, but was halted in her path by incumbent O Panneerselvam who raised a banner of revolt alleging he was forced to step down for her.
Sasikala had met the Governor on Thursday and staked claim to form government, but Rao, who also heard Panneerselvam, is yet to take a call.
