Food on trains unfit for human consumption at some places: CAG
Mughalsarai, Uttar Pradesh: Just days after an auditor's report submitted in parliament said food on trains in India is unfit 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 group of pilgrims travelling from Jharkhand to Uttar Pradesh spotted the disgusting "garnish" in veg biryani when the train was near Patna. One person fell ill. Alerted to the fact, a staffer simply threw the meal out of the train. When a complaint to the ticket examiner and the pantry car 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.
Kishore Kumar, a senior railway officer at Mughalsarai, said the biggest concern was passengers' health. "Before the train arrived here, doctors inquired about their health and also prescribed medicine. We will investigate and take strong action," said Mr Kumar.
He said a report would be given to the ministry.
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.
After an assessment of 74 railway stations and 80 trains across the country, the auditor said the food was stale at many places; dirty tap water was used to cook food; food wasn't covered to protect it from dust and flies, and cockroaches and mice were found on trains.
Mr Kumar said: "We took the CAG report as feedback and we are taking strict measures to enhance our service."

CAG accepts its mistake says “Not only humans Railway food is unfit for consumption for Lizards too”
27, Jul 2017 By dasu

Mughal Sarai, UP: After a dead lizard was found in the veg biriyani served to a commuter on Poorva express, Indian railways setup an inquiry committee consisting of its senior officials to find the reason
behind it. As per its preliminary report, the lizard was perfectly fine till it ate the biriyani. Probably there was something in the biriyani which it could not withstand.
“We have collected the samples from the caterer and we are feeding them to rats, cockroaches and Lizards, to see their reaction to the food. Within a day or two we will conclude on our observation”, said R.P. Gupta senior official of railways who is heading the inquiry committee.
After the dead lizard report came to limelight, CAG has accepted the grave mistake it did it its last week report which said railway food is unfit for human consumption., “It’s a mistake, we should have done further study, how different animals, pests react to such food before sharing the risk in our report”, said S.K. Sharma, CAG of India while talking to our reporter.
