Even after wearing off a little saffron tinge from the walls of the Haj house, the state administration chose to went ahead with the plan of repainting buildings.

The boundary walls of Uttar Pradesh Haj House in Lucknow were painted saffron by the state government.

Immediate cognisance of the negligence done by the contractor in colouring and the building was taken and corrective measure as well as action against him (the contractor) was initiated, the press note said.

"Whitewash and maintenance work were being done at the Haj House located at the Vidhan Sabha road in Lucknow by a contractor, as per the direction of the Haj Samiti".

Tanzeem Ulema-e-Hind State President Maulana Nadeemuljwadi had lodged strong protest warning the BJP government not to indulge in such acts which provoke religious sentiments of the community members.

Saffron colour is majorly related with the Hinduism and also associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). "If the BJP really considers the saffron colour as sacrosanct, it should not indulge in the politicisation of the colour and indulge in blatant saffronisation", SP spokesman Sunil Singh Sajan was quoted as saying by NDTV.

Ever since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took over the reins of the government in March, saffron has become a prominent colour in the state's power corridors.

"Opposition has no issues left to attack the government, hence all this furore", he said while claiming that the saffron colour was being used as it signified energy.

After the BJP government painted the Haj House in Uttar Pradesh's capital city yesterday, many Opposition parties and Muslims objected to the move.

"This is peculiar politics".
