Uttar Pradesh: It looks like that changing everything to saffron is Yogi Adityanath government's favourite time pass. "Rang de tu mohe gerua...” the song from the 2015 film Dilwale seems to be the song of the state these days.

'Gerua' the saffron color is usually in connection with Hinduism and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

After dipping the state secretariat, Haj office and a police station in Lucknow in saffron, the attention has now been focused on toilets. Under the Yogi rule, even the toilets in Uttar Pradesh are getting a saffron coat.

 



In a recent development, a block of 100 toilets in Uttar Pradesh's Etawah has been given a saffron look. It is to be noted that Etawah is the home district of state's former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.  The village Panchayat has denied any political pressure behind the move.

 





Let's take a look at that which turned saffron under Yogi's rule in Uttar Pradesh:

Haj house

Recently, Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government, painted the green-and-white exterior wall of the Haj House in Lucknow to saffron, a move which was opposed by opposition parties and some Muslims in the state.  However, the saffron boundary wall was later repainted in cream colour.

Offices of top bureaucrats

In October, last year, Lal Bahadur Shastri Bhawan which houses the chief minister's office, the office of chief secretary and offices of other senior bureaucrats had also been painted in various shades of saffron.

Saffron buses

During the same time, the state government had also rolled out 50 saffron Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) buses.

The list of official saffron things in the state now includes certificates for sportspersons, booklets with details of awardees, certificates for beneficiaries of crop loan schemes, identity cards at the Secretaria etc.
