V K Sasikala, the former aide of J Jayalalithaa, may take over as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, according to several media reports.

The decision to replace O Panneerselvam as the state Chief Minister will be taken after a crucial meeting of the Tamil Nadu's ruling party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) legislators on Sunday.

Three key aides of Jayalalithaa including Sheila Balakrishnan, KN Vekataramanan and CM’s personal secretary Ramalingam were asked to resign from their posts on Friday night.

However, sources denied any reports of MLAs urging Sasikala to lead the state at the meet on Februaury 5.

"It is is all your imagination and guess work," a senior leader said when asked about Sasikala replacing Pannerselvam.

Sasikala was named the general secretary of AIADMK soon after Jayalalithaa’s death on December 31.
