NEW DELHI, Jan 5 (Agencies): The Haj House in Lucknow, used by Muslims as a transit place on their way to pilgrimage in Mecca, was on Friday given a new coat of paint with a new shade, i.e. saffron.

The exterior wall of the Haj House, that was earlier green and white in colour, has now been painted to saffron.

The move has, however, triggered opposition from various political parties and Darul Uloom.

Coming out in defence of the move, Uttar Pradesh minister Mohsin Raza said that there is no need for any controversy on the matter and that the Opposition has been raising inconsequential things against the government.

"There is no need for controversy in such things. Saffron is an energetic and bright looking colour and the building looks beautiful. Opposition has no big issues against us so they raise inconsequential things," Raza said.

Recently, the office of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister - the Lal Bahadur Shastri Bhawan was also painted in the saffron colour.

Since assuming his office in March last year as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, 43-year-old Yogi Adityanath has pursued his drive of saffron agenda.

The development comes days after CM Adityanath reduced the number of holidays alloted to state-recognised madrassas in the calendar for the year 2018, drawing flak from Islamic institutions.

According to the calendar issued by UP Madrassa Board registrar Rahul Gupta, the holidays during several non-Muslim festivities like Diwali, Christmas, Mahavir Jayanti have been increased.
