Showing no signs of abatement, the power struggle took an ugly turn on Saturday morning when stones were pelted at media persons by alleged AIADMK workers.
Media personnel were reportedly trying to get access to MLAs lodged in a resort by VK Sasikala near Mahabalipuram.
The power struggle between Pannerselvam and Sasikala raised many concerns regarding the state and constitutional call of Governor Vidyasagar Rao.
After OPS turned rebellious stating that he was forced to resign owing to pressure, the AIADMK has been divided into two factions.
However, this seems to be a bitter fight involving same party candidates for the chief ministerial post.
Governor Rao returned to Chennai on Thursday and met both claimants to the legacy of late chief minister Jayalalithaa.
AIADMK has 135 members in the 234-member Tamil Nadu assembly. The Sasikala faction claims to have the support of at least 130 MLAs.
