The bypolls for Tamil Nadu’s RK Nagar constituency began on Saturday amid tight security across Chennai.
Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa, who is contesting from Chennai for the first time, is the main candidate in the constituency.
The R.K. Nagar seat fell vacant following the resignation of P Vetrivel who had represented the constituency.
Many opposition parties including the DMK, MDMK, Congress, PMK, VCK, the TMC and the BJP-led NDA boycotted by-election for various reasons.
