In the latest addition to this saffronisation, several parks, police station and dividers have been given a coat of saffron paint in Lucknow’s Gomti Nagar by Municipal Corporation on Saturday.

The state has been draped in a saffron hue ever since the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government came into the power.
Form booklets and school bags to chairs even the furniture in Chief Minister official residence and office got a saffron towel cover.
The saffronisation, however, did not go down well with the Opposition, who termed it a political ploy of the party.
Last month, an issued raked up after the boundary wall of Haj office in Lucknow, which originally was green and white was painted in saffron colour.
