After Haj office now toll plaza painted saffron in UP

MUZAFFARNAGAR: Uttar Pradesh government’s love for saffron colour is no secret to anyone. In the latest addition to this saffronisation, a toll plaza on the newly-constructed Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur highway here was painted saffron on Sunday.

The state has been draped in a saffron hue ever since the Yogi Adityanath-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government came into the power. From the Chief Minister’s office to various other spots like secretariat building, dividers, statues, the colour has become a defining feature of the state.

Even, a fleet of state-run buses were painted saffron and ivory.

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.
