On Saturday — the fifth day of the AIADMK crisis, Sasikala wrote to Governor Vidyasagar Rao requesting that he show consideration for the welfare of Tamil Nadu and take an immediate decision. She also requested that Rao make some time for her to meet with him and her MLAs as soon as possible.

Her letter also highlighted the fact that the Constitution, democracy and sovereignty has to be protected.

It may be recalled that the caretaker chief minister O Panneerselvam had offered his resignation to Rao on 5 February and the governor accepted it. But barely two days later, Panneerselvam did a complete volte face, leading to the situation in which Tamil Nadu presently finds itself.
