The Samajwadi Party workers staged a protest at the Lalit Narayan Mishra Railway Hospital in Gorakhpur on Thursday against the use of red-green coloured tiles in the bathroom there. Party workers barged into the hospital and blackened the tiles saying it was an insult to their flag bearing the same colours.
Party leaders have also demanded action against those responsible for approving the colour of the tiles.
"We will not tolerate such insult to our party flag and we demand the railway administration change it and the district administration act against those behind it. The toilet was constructed 3-4 months ago, but it came into our notice on Wednesday," news agency PTI quoted Samajwadi Party district president Ram Nagina Sahini, as saying.
