ONE OF THE TWITTER USERS ADVISED JAISWAL TO STOP SULKING
You are paying doesn't mean you will litter the trash anywhere you want and then wait for housekeeping otherwise start sulking!

ANOTHER TWITTER USER TAUGHT HIM A LESSON NOT TO LITTER THE RAILWAY COMPARTMENT
Instead of blasting at the Indian Railways & holding them responsible,could you plz also implore the jokers sitting there who littered all around?
The day your domestic help doesnt come,do your family members litter the house?
No!They dont! Instead they try to keep it clean!
