In an attempt to compare food hygiene in Indian Railways under two different political party rulings, two pictures are being circulated. One picture purports to show clean food being kept in a thali during the BJP’s tenure, while the other shows the food basket (Chana Bhel) being kept in the toilet during the Congress administration.

Verified accounts on twitter, including @rahulpassi shared the two pictures and comapred the food in Indian railways during BJP tenure and Congress tenure. The tweet was made on March 19, 2024, which has received an about more than 500 views on X.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The reality is that these accusations are unfounded and untrue because ‘Chana Bhel’ is sold by third-party vendors, and the image of a food basket in a toilet was first shared in 2021. Additionally, the Congress administration has not held power since 2014. Based on railway tenure, political accounts have historically targeted one another multiple times.

It was found that one of the images were shared by Twitter user @Roopa_hope with the caption “Just found out why Bhel is looking skinny. ” One Twitter user jokingly commented and wrote, “Bus toilets should be this clean.” Another user wrote, “This photo will go viral on social media so much that people will skip eating on the railways.”
