Citing the example of Saturday’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) meeting in Guwahati’s Khanapara, wherein the party workers were not allowed to carry anything in black, a participant said, “The BJP does not believe in its own party workers. They were thoroughly checked before they entered the premises. Any handkerchief or other clothing in black had to be kept outside the meeting premise.
