Bullet train project introduced by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has divided the country into two. There have been endless debates on whether India seriously needs Bullet trains or not. Hitting back at people who are opposing Bullet train, Narendra Modi said that those who are opposing bullet train should travel on bullock carts.
It is said that government will invest a whopping amount of the Rs 1.1 lakh crore project in Bullet train project which will be built by Japan. Reports say that bullet train would be connecting Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Narendra Modi said that even Congress wanted to implement this project but they failed in past and hence are opposing now.
During recent election rally at the Amod Sugar factory near this Gujarat city on the banks of the Narmada, Narendra Modi said,
“Those opposing the bullet train project should travel on bullock carts. We won’t mind,”
According to the Railway Minister, Bullet Train which would be built by the state-run Japan International Cooperation Agency would open up a huge employment opportunity in Gujarat. Speaking in the same Rally, here is what Modi said,
“Imagine how much employment will it generate for the region, for Bharuch. I ask you where will the cement for the bullet train (infrastructure) come from, iron come from, laborers come from? Won’t that be from India? And who will be buying that? Japan. Isn’t it a big deal?”
