Indian Railways, which is the largest rail network in Asia, hasn't had the best public perception when it comes to cleanliness. For decades people have complained about the unkempt state of the stations, platforms as well as the trains. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal is desperately trying to change this negative perception of Indian Railways.
Goyal has been frequently tweeting about different railway stations across India. He has been laying emphasis on the clean condition of these stations in order to improve public perception. In his latest tweet, he highlights the Guntakal Railway Station in Andra Pradesh.

Goyal says, about the station, "Clean wide roads and open spaces coupled with comfortable interiors has enhanced the travel experience of passengers."
In another tweet on Friday, Goyal talked about the Jhunjhunu Railway Station in Rajasthan. According to the Railway Minister, the station has been redeveloped with intricately painted walls and new passenger-friendly amenities.
