As per the video, the man was asking to buy a ticket and he did not have the exact amount. Offering a 100 rupee note, he asked the official to give him change. The argument got heated when the official stated that he does not have any change. Once the individual started making the video, the official got infuriated. Twitter user Tejas Shah asked the official to show his ID card and asserted that he will file a complaint against this behaviour.
Later, he went on to upload this incident on his Twitter handle. He also tagged IRCTC, the Rail Ministry of India and the Prime Minister’s Office and urged them to look into the matter.

Even the Twitteratis did not hold back while reacting to this video. However, the audience was clearly divided. While some felt it was not unusual for an official to react in this way, others stated that the issue at hand was not as big. They also brought to light the intense amount of patience it takes to deal with so many people every day.
