In Yogi's UP, now toll plaza turns saffron

A toll plaza on the Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur highway in Uttar Pradesh was painted saffron on Sunday.

Uttar Pradesh government's love for saffron colour is no secret to anyone. 

From the chief minister's office to various other spots, the colour has become a defining feature of the state.

It has virtually permeated everything -- from booklets and school bags to towels or chairs, buses and even police stations. 

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.
