Alappuzha (Kerala), May 17: CPI-M leader and former minister G. Sudhakaran is facing legal trouble for peeping into the voting compartment when party veteran V.S. Achuthandan voted in Kerala. Sudhakaran is the CPI-M legislator from Ambalapuzha constituency. Pitted against him in the assembly elections of Monday was Jata Dal-United (JD-U) leader Sheikh P. Harris of the Congress-led UDF. 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 Achuthandan and his wife voted on Monday,” said Shukoor. Sudhakaran said he had done no wrong, and demanded to know why the police allowed jourlists into the voting centre. He said he was ready to face the legal issues. (IANS)
