On Friday, UP Minority minister Mohsin Raza, lone Muslim face in the Uttar Pradesh cabinet, said, “There is no need for controversy in such things, saffron is an energetic and bright looking colour, the building looks beautiful. Opposition has no big issues against us so they raise inconsequential things”

Meanwhile, the office of the saffron-clad Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath, was also painted in saffron colour last year.

This is one of the first incidents of repainting in Uttar Pradesh.
