Few days back a report submitted in parliament said food on trains in India is unhealthy for human consumption, passengers on a train in Uttar Pradesh have been served proof. A dead lizard was found in a meal on the Poorva Express on Tuesday.
A bunch of traveller travelling from Jharkhand to Uttar Pradesh spotted the disgusting garnish in veg biryani when the train was near Patna. One person fell sick. Alerted to the fact, a staff member simply threw the meal out of the train. When a complaint to the ticket inspector and the kitchen storage room attendant drew no apparent response, the passengers tweeted to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.
The impact of the tweet was that when the train rolled into the Mughalsarai station in UP, several senior officers came and medicines were given to passengers taken ill.
The biggest concern was passenger’s health. "Before the train arrived here, doctors examine about their health and also prescribed medicine. We will inspect and take strong action," said Mr. Kishore Kumar senior railway officer.
Last week, a report of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) flagged that the food served on trains is unfit for human consumption at some places, cooked in polluted water and in most unhygienic conditions.
