When CM Yogi Adityanath snubbed his minister for suggesting saffron uniform in UP schools

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath snubbed his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya and other ministers for suggesting uniform in government schools be changed to saffron colour.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been meeting officials of various departments on a daily basis since taking charge to chart out his government's future course of action.

In PM Narendra Modi-style, CM Adityanath has been insisting officials to come with presentation and plans for development work concerning their respective departments.

During one such meeting with Education Department officials, the Uttar Pradesh CM almost snubbed his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya over the issue of colour code of school uniform in government schools.


In an attempt to 'impress' the chief minister, officials and some other members of Yogi Adityanath's cabinet came out with strange suggestions.

While deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya suggested saffron colour code, other ministers opted for the colour similar to that of a lotus, BJP's symbol, for uniform of government schools, Dainik Bhaskar reported.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath didn't respond to the ideas and instead turned to officials for their views.

Principal Secretary Ajay Singh displayed some of the samples he was carrying with him.

"We will finalise the colour of school uniform according to the choice of kids. They should choose what colour of dress they want to wear," Adityanath told officials.

A final decision in this regard would be taken in the next review meeting.
