Are experiences of travelling long distances on trains worsening day by day? Are passengers with confirmed tickets facing daunting incidents on long-haul journeys? Multiple recent news trigger these questions in our minds. In the past few weeks, we saw several videos of ticketless passengers overcrowding AC train coaches. The most recent shocking incident showed a group of passengers sleeping near the Chhattisgarh Express train’s toilets.

Video Of Passengers Sleeping Near Toilets Of Chhattisgarh Express Goes Viral

Taking to the X platform, ਹਤਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ (@Hatindersinghr3) shared a video of people lying down and resting in front of the bathrooms.

It was on Thursday when a passenger recorded a video of people sleeping on the floors of this express train. The viral clip clearly shows how people slept anywhere they found a small area to rest. Travellers grabbed a seat at any place they could manage, from crowded seats to train gates, floors, and even on the toilet passage of the train.

The conditions were so horrifying that there was not even the tiniest space available to walk and move forward. These passengers blocked the interior corridor of this Chhatisgarh Express in such a way that there was no room left for others to move, walk, or even use basins and toilets.

It took no time for the original video to grab the attention of Netizens. Surely, it raised people’s eyebrows and also angered X users. People are angry seeing how the concerned departments are not focusing on such major problems. They are criticising the Ministry of Railways for their management and operations.

The official Twitter account for support to rail users reacted to the incident and shared its responses as well. According to its reply, the department has informed the concerned authorities about the much-talked-about news of many passengers sleeping near toilets on Chhatisgarh Express.

It was just a few days ago when news of passengers with confirmed tickets not being able to board a train broke out. Ticketless passenegrs blocked the doors of a train to Howrah in such a way that people with confirmed tickets were stranded at the Chennai Central station.
