  Former Chief Whip of Kerala Government and Kerala Congress (M)’s rebel MLA PC George has always managed to be in the limelight with the sheer amount of controversies that he has generated. This time, George is in news again for becoming the first MLA to be censured by the state assembly, for derogatory remarks against another political leader.   The Assembly Privileges and Ethics Committee headed by K Muraleedharan MLA had inquired into the issue following CPI(M) leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s complaint against George for violating the Code of Conduct for MLAs and recommended that he be censured.   George has been censured for his remarks to the media in 2013 against JSS leader K R Gowriammma and her late husband and communist veteran leader T V Thomas in 2013.   A brief resolution in this regard was moved by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and passed by a voice vote.  In the statement. assembly speaker N Shakthan told George such instances should not be repeated.    Reacting to the censure, George said he humbly accepted it.   It all began in 2013 when George started taunting MLA Ganesh Kumar on allegations of womanising.   While talking about George's allegations, veteran leader Gowriamma told journalists that about 31 years ago a woman and child had come to the assembly in search of PC George, claiming that he was the child’s father. She had also alleged that it was she who had consoled the mother and sent her back after giving Rs 2000.   This allegation levelled by Gowriamma peeved George who retaliated that Gowriamma had lost her memory due to old age and the woman and child may have come in search of her late husband TV Thomas. Adding fuel to the fire, he told media that Thomas had many relationships.   This made Gowriamma break down in public and she sought action against George.
