Social media networks provide us with a good platform to keep ourselves updated with the latest happenings of the world, share our thoughts and talk about many things. What’s more, we can also share those things which may be posted by others.
Recently the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to post a video which shows Vande Bharat Express passing through a station at a very fast or rather lightning speed.
The caption that he wrote while sharing the video read, “It’s a bird…It’s a plane…Watch India’s first semi-high speed train built under ‘Make in India’ initiative, Vande Bharat Express zooming past at lightening speed.”

The video went viral soon and it was shared by some political leaders too including Ram Madhav, National General Secretary of BJP. However, problem started when people began to say that the video posted by Piyush Goyal is edited and the train is moving in fast forward speed.
Soon, a social media user Abhishek Jaiswal claimed that this video was shot by him and the speed of the train in the video has been doubled. He also shared the link of his video which is available on his YouTube channel The Rail Mail.

Soon after this, netizens started trolling the Railway Minister for increasing the speed of the train while some asked as to what the need of editing was when the train was moving in a good speed itself.
Here are some selected reactions:

Massive respect for Piyush Goyal. He just made the Video 2X times faster and called it Semi-High Speed Train when he could have made it 6X times faster and called it Super High Speed Train.

Actually Piyushji could have shown it in 4x speed also….but then people would have confused it with Rocket.

Mr Gol… What you shared is your fate in coming General Elections. You guys will vanish from people's memory the same way.

Quickest way to loose respect and credibility, all the hard work can be tarnished with doctored videos like this. Saw the video w/o fast forward and it was pretty good, why the gimmick
