“@RailMinIndia @RailwayNorthern @AshwiniVaishnaw travelling on Vande Bharat from Dehradun to Anand Vihar in the executive class today.

This, however, is not the first time that an individual has complained about the quality of food served on a train. Earlier, a passenger travelling from Rani Kamlapati to Jabalpur on Vande Bharat Express found a dead cockroach in his meal. After getting down at the Jabalpur railway station, he filed a formal complaint with the West Central Railway and shared the incident on X. The tweet read, “I was travelling on 1/02/2024 train no. 20173 RKMP to JBP (Vande Bharat Exp). I was traumatised by seeing a dead cockroach in the food packet given by them.”
