The video quickly went viral, prompting a flood of comments from disgruntled internet users. Many expressed their anger and frustration, noting that such situations are all too common in India. Several users demanded stricter enforcement of rules by authorities to address the problem.

One user commented, "This is a very serious problem. Railways, to increase their profit, largely exchanged sleeper and general coaches with AC class. The result is sleeper class is crowded by urgent general class travelers."

Another user added, "After the government formation, the authorities should take action on this. Middle and lower-middle-class families are facing lots of problems due to this. Make a strict rule with that increase of trains or general coaches."
