Alappuzha district Congress committee president A.A. Shukoor told the media here that a veteran of election battles like Sudhakaran had violated basic election rules.

"We have registered our complaint with the Election Commission as he peeped into the compartment not once but twice when Achuthanandan and his wife voted on Monday," said Shukoor.
