Muzaffarnagar , June 17 : A toll plaza on the Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur highway in Uttar Pradesh has been painted saffron on Sunday.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in Uttar Pradesh and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given a makeover to secretariat building, dividers, statues, and even toll plazas with a saffron colour.
From the Chief Minister’s office to various other spots, the colour has become a defining feature of the state.
Earlier this year, Gomti Nagar police station, Qaiser Bagh police station, Haj committee office’s boundary walls in Lucknow were coated saffron.
The saffronisation, however, did not go down well with the Opposition, who termed it a political ploy of the party.
Earlier, in December, around 100 government primary schools were painted saffron. Later the DM got them white washed again.
The towels in the office of the chief minister on the fifth floor of the building are of a saffron hue and the curtains, though not saffron in colour are close to it, the sources said.
Even the fleet of 50 buses were saffron coloured .
