Rat in 1st class coach

It is not a new thing i. e. Spotting a rat in train. As the complaint is made by Nivedita Saraf and being a celebrity it got publicity. While travelling to Aurangabad I also spotted a rat in AC 1st coach. Recently while travelling to Amravati there was a rat in A1 coach of Amravati exp 12111 on 18th September. I didn't complain as it it brings no results. I complained several times about the poor quality of bedrolls. Most of the time the bedsheets and pillow covers are not washed. I feel the things can improve provided all Indians start caring about the image of the country ! Regards
