Sasikala, the deposed AIADMK leader, is serving a four year jail term in a disporportionate assets case at the Parappana Agrahara prison here.
Dhinakaran was accompanied by a group of disqualified MLAs besides a couple of sitting legislators, all loyal to him.
Later, speaking to reporters, Dhinakaran said the disqualified MLAs had earlier expressed their desire to meet her.
"They discussed the High Court verdict and our future activities. She is aware of everything and she said it is the right decision (to face polls)," Dhinakaran, Sasikala's nephew, said.
One of the disqualified MLAs, P Palaniappan, said Sasikala was doing well.
He said she appreciated them for their decision to face elections.
He also said the disqualified MLAs were united and that they consulted Dhinakaran over important matters.
Though they had initially decided to appeal against the October 25 verdict, the disqualified MLAs later chose to face the bypolls.
