JMM central general secretary Supriyo Bhattacharya said that the JMM was apprehending such indecency on part of the BJP workers and had sent letters to the PMO and Union home ministry seeking their intervention. "We have decided to boycott programmes of all ministers of Union government and the JMM leaders would sport black badges during programmes of Union government," he said.
Describing the government's official programme as an election rally of BJP, Bhattacharya said that Prime Minister is country's leader and that decency should be maintained. JMM had sought intervention of Election Commission of India (ECI) to prevent use of posters and banners of the party during Prime Minister's programme.
Bhattacharya said the way BJP used platform of official programme to campaign for party it was nothing but wastage of public money in electioneering.
