Today (18:37)   Food poisoning affects 6 on Rajdhani, passengers protest

KOLKATA: Six passengers fell ill after eating the food served on the New Delhi-Sealdah Rajdhani Express leading to protests by co-passengers at two stations on Tuesday.
Union minister and Asansol MP Babul Supriyo said he also found the food and service quality on Rajdhani "utterly disappointing" at times.
A section of the passengers protested at the Asansol and Sealdah terminus against the "poor quality of food and equally poor service" on the iconic train.
food quality in the train is poor and the timing of serving the food is equally bad. When the passengers spend such a substantial amount for travelling in a train, they expect a better quality and service but that is often not available here. At least six passengers from our train fell ill yesterday (Monday) after eating dinner," complained a female passenger.
The Eastern Railway authorities admitted they had received the complaint and said appropriate action would be taken after a probe. But they called it an "isolated" incident.
"This is a one off incident. The train was carrying around 1,200 passengers. Of them 5-6 passengers from a specific coach have complained about the food quality. We are investigating the matter. Appropriate action would be taken," an Eastern Railway spokesman said.
Supriyo assured that he would take up the matter with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and also run a check on the train's food quality himself if necessary.
"Today (Tuesday) I would attend a council of ministers' meeting at the Prime Minister's house where I would discuss the matter with Suresh Prabhu. I might as well come to Asansol any day to inspect the situation myself. Its true that the quality of the food in Rajdhani is very bad sometimes. I thank the passengers for their protest. Their agitation has made my case stronger," he added.

12314 Sealdah Rajdhani has food issues, infact in Down from NDLS except for 12260 none of the so called Premium trains offer any respite. And regarding the food quality, thanks to new catering policy the food we eat is cooked, refrigerated and heated. To a certain extent than can spoil food quality too.

Are you asking why the name is Saranda?
Well, the train is named after the famous Saranda forest, which is located at the southern part of Jharkhand.

Today (18:48)   ‘Stale’ food makes Rajdhani passengers ill, Babul Supriyo shares experience

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   35881 news posts

Several passengers fell ill on the Kolkata-bound Rajdhani Express on Monday night after eating suspected stale food served on the train.
Angry over the incident, the passengers protested after the train reached Asansol station in West Bengal on Tuesday morning. Many of them said they have not eaten since Monday night.
People vomited after taking the food, and the staff didn’t even clean the toilets and basins, they alleged.
they accused the train staff of ignoring their complaint about the food.
Union junior heavy industries minister Babul Supriyo, the BJP parliamentarian for Asansol, supported the passengers, who lodged a complaint with the railways after the train reached its destination, Sealdah station, later in the day.
“Their grievance is valid. The day before I took the same train to Asansol and had a similar experience. The quality of food was bad. I thank these passengers for making my argument stronger,” Supriyo said.
He promised to take up the issue at a ministers’ meet in the Prime Minister’s home on Tuesday evening.
“Railway minister Suresh Prabhu will be present. The food contractors should be chosen more carefully by the railways,” he said.
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), a subsidiary of the railways, hires private contractors for meals to train passengers.
Sealdah station manager Ananda Bardhan assured necessary steps after receiving the complaint.

A humble request to all the people on IRI.
First of all please note that I am not at all bashing any zone, state, city or any member. Please have a open mindset and a fair judgement towards this post as there is nothing offensive that should be reported but just an honest opinion.
Over the last few months the only topic that people discuss on the Forum and Poll is of GKP, Bihar, ECR & NCR if any one posts any of the above related things in the forum it is then
followed by some useless and repetitive comments. Every time people are posting the same thing again and again in a different way which is again followed by the same old repetitive discussion, whereas if someone posts pictures, videos or information apart from these zone, state or city there is no response at all.
Because of all this IRI has become boring because every other post is related to the same old repetitive topics. There are zones, state and cities apart from these to discuss about there are many other trains that deserve the limelight.
I am not completely against it but the only thing I want is that things should be in limit as excess of any thing is not good.

Apne area se related polls, imaginary trains etc mein jyaada participate/comment karna jaayaz hai dost!!
Kyon ki sabko har area/ state/ zone/ divisions/trains ki jaankari nahin hoti. Is liye jiske baare mein kuch maloom na ho, comment karne (yaani ki Phatte marne) se achcha hai kuch comment na kiya jaaye. Yeh trend member ki imaandari aur logical hone ki or sanket karta hai.

Lekin Apni area ki train/ division/ zone
ko bina tathyon pe gaur kar, hameshaa best poll karna,
unka tathyon se pare gungaan karna ityaadi
IRI members ke liye bilkul jaayaz nahin hai,
kyon ki unse aam janata ki tulna mein, rly ke maamlon mein, jyaada jaankari aur vivek ki ummed kee jaati hai.
IRI members ko doosri zones/ states/ area mein interest lena chaiye aur apne mitron se seekhna chahiye, taaki hum sahi maayne mein IR ke jaankar banein. i.e. "India-Rail info" wale banein, aur na ki "apne zone/ state/ division- Rail info" ke.

Always trying to run down other members as inferior huh? Trying to slander former RMs, trying to tag winner and losers of trains.
You sound very familiar to another member /blog/user/1546020 who stopped using IRI on 02-Feb-2017 (but still maintains the account). His Screen Name was - For Better Managed Indian Railways.
you became member on 03-Feb-2017 with the screen name - For Better Managed Indian Railways. Coincidence?
