The journalists did not tell me exactly who died. Sudhakaran said in a Facebook post commemorating KG George that he accepted it as a mistake on his part not to have asked them. Let’s read Sudhakaran’s explanation.
“This morning when I asked about the death of KG George, I made an inappropriate statement. I did not understand from the question that it was Malayalam’s proud cinematographer KG George who had said goodbye to us. My old colleague with the same name came to mind. Among many political questions, I did not expect a question from outside the political field.
The journalists did not tell me exactly who died. I accept it as a mistake on my part not to ask them.
The caution required as a public servant was not observed in this regard. It is not the culture of Congress to try to escape by justifying its failures. Therefore, I express my unreserved regret at the inappropriateness of my response and the distress caused to dear workers of my party and those who love KG George.
Tributes to KG George, who cemented his place in the history of Malayalam cinema with countless masterpieces.”
