A video of the “poor food quality” aboard the Secunderabad-Visakhapatnam “Vande Bharat Express” train is doing the rounds on the internet almost a month after it was introduced. A journalist shared a video of a man demonstrating the quality of the food on the train on Friday.
The caption for the photo said, “Food price in Vande Bharat train ambitiously introduced by Central government is very high, quality is very bad.” In the 49-second clip, the man is seen squeezing a sizable amount of oil from a piece of fried food.
A number of users has tweeted about the little video. Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) responded to the video with the following statement: “Sir, an appropriate official has been informed for corrective steps.”
The Railway Seva, an official account for rail users, answered on Saturday. “Sir, Your mobile number will be requested via DM. You can also call 139 for prompt resolution or post your problem directly at https://railmadad.indianrailways.gov.in, they wrote.
People have commented on the tweet’s general popularity and the general food quality of the Indian Railways.
This occurs only one week after a photo of trash lying around on the floor of a Vande Bharat Express train coach went viral on social media. In a snapshot posted to Twitter by Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officer Awanish Sharan with the title “We The People”, where a worker holding a broom is seen clearing trash like empty water bottles, plastic bags, and paper scattered on the floor of the train.
