 Continuing his defiant attitude in the Congress led ruling UDF, government Chief Whip and KC-M nominee P C George today said BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was not an "untouchable".

George also took exception to the decision of a group of legislatures from the state to cancel a visit to Surat to study the waste management schemes.

The team consisting members from both ruling UDF and CPI-M led LDF opposition had cancelled the programme fearing political back lash in the state.

Talking to reporters here today, George, who was under attack from Congress for attending the 'Run for Unity' programme organised by BJP, said he would not mind to attend public functions held by BJP.

"The Congress leaders by criticising me for attending a function to honour Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is actually humiliating Patel", George said.

Referring to the issues in Congress in the state, George said KPCC President Ramesh Chennithala should be inducted into the Ministry headed by Oommen Chandy to resolve the problems in that party.
