Viral video shows sleeper car of express train packed with passengers, sparks concern | Trending News


Over the past few months, several videos have surfaced on social media showing trains overcrowded with commuters and poor management of air conditioning and sleeper coaches. A new video showing a packed sleeper coach of the Shramjeevi SF Express from Delhi to Bihar went viral on Tuesday.

The viral video begins with a passenger filming the crowded sleeper car from the top bunk. The video shows two to three passengers sleeping on one seat while several other passengers stand in the aisle area.

X user Vicky Kumar shared the video, tagging Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and wrote, “I know it's early morning and no railway official will find a solution as they are sleeping. Train no. 12392, thousands of domestic passengers are travelling in sleeper class. Please take action or keep sleeping.”

Responding to the video, the official Railway Seva contact requested the user to share the travel details. “We request you to share the travel details (PNR/UTS No.) and mobile number preferably through DM. You can also raise your concern directly or dial 139 for quick resolution,” the contact said.

The video drew a lot of reactions. One user said, “Early morning? When we travel in sleeper cars, it is normal for people to get into sleeper cars early in the morning and travel to the stops. Most of them wake up by then and those who are sleeping continue to travel. I never thought that one day this would be propaganda.” Another user commented, “My friend, a Sanghi Bhakt, said before the elections that this gimmick of overcrowding trains was from the Congress and that after Modi 3.0 there will be no overcrowding in any train.”

Last week, a video of passengers sleeping near the toilet area of ​​the Chhattisgarh Express train caused a stir.
