The Southern Railway administration on Monday pulled up a man who was found packing food in an unhygienic manner at the Chennai Central railway station.
Several photos and videos shared by Sharavanan Sivakumar, trustee, Wildlife and Nature Conservation Trust, of a man scooping sambhar with a ladle from a plastic bucket and transferring it to the aluminium foil packs, were widely shared by people on social media. The bucket was covered from inside with a black garbage bag.
The issue was later drawn to the attention of the Southern Railway and the Indian
Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation staff. Aseervatham Achary, member, passenger amenities committee, replied to Mr. Sivakumar, informing him that he had spoken to the Chief Commercial Manager, who had assured him of action.
Officials in the station said the man — the staff of a contractor running one of the food stalls at the railway station — was handed over to the Railway Protection Force.
While his identity could not be confirmed, railway sources said a petty case was booked against him.

This problem is age old and shall continue to exist. That is why many wise paxs prefer to take cooked or ready made food from home rather than going to purchase food from Pantry/ Station.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
