Dismissing the claim as "misleading", PIB Fact Check tweeted: "Through a video on Facebook, it is being claimed that the Government of India has put stamps of a private company on the trains.

Priyanka Gandhi has not deleted her post or reacted to the FIB Fact Check's tweet. The Congress party has also not reacted so far. Both Priyanka and her brother Rahul Gandhi has been opposing privatisation of the Indian Railways.
