Everyone complains about the quality of food served by the Indian Railways. 

A video, which is going viral, explains why. 

It shows a few men packing a rice dish on a  platform without any care for hygiene or wellbeing of passengers. 

It even shows them scooping food from dirty platform floor and packing it. 

There is no information about the video though there are claims that they are re-packaging left over food. 

The video was allegedly shot at Vishakapatnam Railway station and announcements in Telugu can be heard in the background. 

Last month, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) had said that the Railways catering units at stations and in trains were failing to maintain cleanliness and hygiene standards. 

The CAG had inspected select 74 stations and 80 trains and found that the food that was being served was unsuitable for human consumption. 

The CAG report, which was tabled in Parliament, had created an uproar. 

It had noted that contaminated foodstuff, recycled foodstuff, shelf life expired packaged and bottled items, unauthorised brands of water bottles were being offered for sale on stations.
