After getting his office at the sprawling secretariat annexe building painted in saffron colour, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has turned his attention towards the text books.
According to sources in the government, the cover pages of the text books for classes up to 8th standard would be coloured saffron from next academic session.
The Basic Education Department has readied a proposal and it was likely to be approved shortly, the sources said.
The books would also have pictures of Adityanath and Minister for Education Dinesh Sharma, sources added. The school bags being carried by the children of the primary classes in the state have already been painted saffron.
Earlier, undeterred by Opposition criticism, the state government had painted all the signboards along the roads in the state in saffron along with the picture of the Minister for PWD Keshav Prasad Maurya.
Adityanath, who is always clad in saffron clothes, had recently got the secretariat building at annexe painted in saffron. The chief minister had been, since taking charge of the state, trying to give government schemes and projects a saffron tint. He also got the state transport corporation buses painted saffron.
Colour of Sun
UP minister Siddharth Nath Singh justified the move saying that saffron was the colour of the Sun also.
The BSP government under Mayawati, during its regime, had dyed government buildings and transport buses blue - the colour the party is associated with. Even the state information department diary was printed blue.
