Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on Friday filed her papers for the R K Nagar byelection to be held on June 27, the Times of India said. 

The AIADMK chief, who was sworn in as the chief minister on May 23 after having been acquitted by the Karnataka high court in a disproportionate assets case, filed her nomination at the Tondiarpet zonal office.

The chief minister left her Poes Garden residence at 1.30pm and filed the papers at around 2pm.

AIADMK cadres greeted Jayalalithaa as her convoy moved along the Kamarajar Salai and Tondiarpet High Road. Party cadres had erected banners and flex boards on the route greeting her.

Hundreds of AIADMK cadres carrying party flags cheered her as her convoy reached the Tondiarpet zonal office. The members of the election committee, which Jayalalithaa appointed to oversee the party's campaign, received her. All ministers, including O Panneerselvam, party's presidium chairman E Madhusudhanan, MPs, MLAs and former legislators are the members of the 50-member committee.

The city police had made heavy security arrangements. Around 1,000 policemen were on duty. Policemen were deployed along her route too.
Vehicular traffic had been affected in the area for more than one hour.

Besides Jayalalithaa, five more candidates have filed their papers in the constituency. They include activist K R 'Traffic' Ramaswamy and 'Election King' Dr K. Padmarajan.

Majority of the opposition parties have opted to keep away from the bypoll. The Left parties have decided to a field a candidate.
