Railways have strongly refuted claims in a Twitter thread that sub-standard food was served in the newly launched Vande Bharat train. Twitter user Himanshu (@Railfann9971) made allegations about the food served on the newly launched Vande Bharat train. The user expressed his dissatisfaction with the meal, stating that the food was 'pathetic' and also seemed a bit 'stale'. In the post, the Twitter user shared two pictures of his different experiences on Vande Bharat. The first photo he claimed was from the inaugural run of train number 22230 from Madgaon to Mumbai. Meanwhile, the second picture he claimed was from his more recent visit on the same train. Take a look at the post he shared:
