Anew controversy has started over the colour of tiles used in the toilet of the Railways Hospital in Gorakhpur. Criticising the ruling party over the use of red and green tiles, which are quite similar to the colour scheme used in the flag of the Samajwadi Party, the SP demanded immediate action against the people responsible for it. The party also said it has lodged a complaint with Railways Minister Piyush Goyal.

Responding to Samajwadi Party’s tweet, the North Eastern Railway clarified that the tiles had no connection with any political party and that they were fixed in the toilets years ago under the Samajwadi to ensure cleanliness in the toilets. The organisation urged Samajwadi party to cooperate in maintaining cleanliness.

In a tweet from its official handle on Thursday morning, the party said: “Painting the walls of the toilet in the Gorakhpur Railway Hospital in the colour of SP flag due to political malice by the corrupt minded politicians, is a shameful incident which tarnishes democracy! The insult to the colours of the flag of a major political party is downright reprehensible. Action should be taken on this with cognizance and it should be changed immediately. Samajwadi Party has also complained to Railway Minister Piyush Goyal and the Railway Ministry on Twitter about this.”
