The Indian government has denied allegations made by the Congress party that railway safety funds were being misused on luxury items such as crockery, furniture, and foot massagers. The government sources stated that these items were provided in the rooms rather than being purchased with the funds meant for railway safety.

However, the Indian government has dismissed these allegations entirely.
