As a token of giving letters of appointment to aspirants, Jayalalithaa handed over them to five of the job-seekers in a function in Nilgiris district, where she is staying now. Although such job camps have been held across Tamil Nadu periodically, the camp in RK Nagar has attracted attention as the constituency is represented in the Assembly by Jayalalithaa. She won the seat by a huge margin and became Chief Minister for the fifth time in May this year after she was acquitted in an assets case by the Karnataka High Court.
