Jayakumar said a committee will be formed to run the party. OPS faction wants all the three important posts - Presidium Chairman, General Secretary and Chief Minister.
Dinakaran said that since everyone had made a decision to keep him out of the party affairs, he had chose to stay out.
Panneerselvam said the war for justice would continue "till the main goal is achieved".
His faction of the party and the one headed by current chief minister E Palaniswamy had been discussing a merger of the two factions. He said that he had sent a petition to the Election Commission to declare Sasikala's appointment as AIADMK general secretary "illegal".
The K Palaniswami cabinet yesterday night revolted against him and made a decision to keep him and his family out of the party and the government. "This is our faction's first victory that Sasikala and her family have been ousted from the party", Panneerselvam told the media.
Ruling out any change of chief minister in the state for this possible patch up, Thambidurai said people from the opposing faction may be included in the organisation.
The Delhi Police had issued a lookout notice against the leader on Tuesday after inputs that Mr Dinakaran was an NRI and could try to flee the country.
Dinakaran refused to step down as party deputy general secretary arguing that he had to first consult his aunt Sasikala, party general secretary, who is serving a sentence in a Bengaluru jail.
During the day, it had appeared that there was an impasse in the talks to merge the two sides - a move that would give back the united political outfit the Two Leaves poll symbol of the AIADMK on which MG Ramachandran and J Jayalalithaa won elections.
Earlier, Dhinakaran said none in the party were against him, asserting that all party MLAs stood behind him. "How can someone inside the jail be informed", he asked. "I will not be a cause of it", he told reporters on Wednesday.

Only after the merger formalities are completed, can the two factions can approach the EC to unfreeze the symbol.
