Entire social media for the past few days is filled with videos of travellers on trains struggling for space across all classes.
The absolute dead silence on this matter from the Railways and the Rail Minister is only making it worse.

Ironically, years of government amplifying the videos of Vande Bharat (a good service nonetheless) has been completely smashed right at the time
of elections by these scenes playing out.

I just travelled on 11302 (not even on a weekend) from Bangalore to Mumbai, and while I was fortunate enough to be on coach A2, the general and sleeper coaches and even 3AC until Kalaburgi looked like a scene from hell.

Sure, one major cause is the reduction of sleeper/general coaches but this government as per data compared to earlier governments has performed exceptonally on the front of electrification and track Doubling/Tripling - What is the use when new trains are not being added on this newly created track capacity?

How does one manage to mess it up this bad?

Any source bhai, Who are the people who were earlier in GS now in 3A . Ais atoh nahi ki ICAR ke fake farmer jaisa aapka list hai jisme govt ne bola hai ki 75,000 farmers ka income double h gaya hai. click here

Apna per-capita itna badha aur vikas itna tez bahaga ki bangladesh humse aage nikal chuka hai 2018 se . Padh lo bhai click here

Yeh gyan whatsapp par nahi aayega. AFAIK pehle khud AC class me jao fir defend karna yeh sab.

Your logic is totally baseless and doesn't hold any ground, Agar aisa hai toh hata kyu nahi deti government SL , 2S and UR who is stopping them. Let , AC CC AND AC 3 tier be the lowest class .

I know now I have to listen your pro -BJP rant. Itna defend mat karo ki sahi galat ka pata na chale.

What you want to exactly ask?

If you want to just pass your remarks and feedback then I am not liable to answer you.

Yes, I can justify that in last 20 years per person income of India has been increased by 5 times and ticket price from Delhi to Mumbai in Sleeper Class was between 350-400 in 2004 so 5 times of that value is now around 1800 which is more then current 3rd AC price?

This shows your insecurity that when I am talking about 20 years then after also you are becoming anti BJP spokesperson. Between 2004-2014, there was not BJP government so my statement is in favour of both UPA and NDA.

According to World Bank website, per person income of India in 2002 was 468.8 USD and in 2022 it was 2410.9 USD.

Yes Bangladesh definitely overtook India in terms of per person income but do you have any historical data for price of train ticket in Bangladesh 20 years ago and today?

This is not WhatsApp University Gyan, This is officially data of

One more source - click here

According to this article, ticket price of Bangladesh Railway is 3.5 times of Indian Railways.

विकास बांग्लादेश वाला चाहिए तो जेब ढीली भी करनी पड़ेगी। फ्री राशन,
फ्री बिजली, मकान , शौचालय के बाद अब यात्रा का ठेका भी सरकार ने ही थोड़े ले लिया है। पैसा नही है तो घर बैठो।

सरकार को अविलंब किराया बढ़ाना चाहिए
