As Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his ambitious bullet train project today, insisting it would bring “convenience and safety, employment and speed”, he was bombarded with criticism & Trolls On Social Media. The bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai is expected to be completed by 2022 and is likely to traverse the distance of over 500 km between the two cities in around two hours.
The main opposition Congress called the Ahmedabad-Mumbai high-speed train an “election bullet train” project launched with an eye on the upcoming Gujarat Assembly polls, BJP’s ally Shiv Sena said it might be a dream project of Modi but not for the common man.
“It’s not the time to move forward slowly as time doesn’t wait. The bullet train will bring in convenience and safety, employment and speed,” he said as he launched the Rs 1.10 lakh crore venture with his Japanese counterpart.
