Shiv Sena criticises PM Narendra Modi's bullet train project

Why should Prime Minister Modi focus on bullet trains when basic safety measures are not ensured in our transport system? "Bullet Train is not India's ordinary masses" dream. Party sources acknowledged that the launch of the bullet train project could consolidate urban votes in the BJP's favour.

Many youngsters from the city liked the idea travel time to Goa being reduced to 2 hrs thanks to the bullet train.

"The government earned Rs 175,000 crore profit from petrol and diesel excise duties".

The Congress leader said there were three lakh vancancies in the Indian Railways of which there were 1,42,000 vacancies on the safety side, which needed to be filled first.

"Japan has been running bullet trains since 1964, and that too at the speed of 500 to 600 km per hour", said the editorial and added that the important point here is that why there have been no accidents in Japan despite trains running at such speed.

Japan is a pioneer in high-speed rail transport and some of their trains are ranked among the fastest in the world.

Thankfully, no one was injured, but the Thursday's derailment is one more mishap added to the country's growing list of train accidents in recent times.

"The UPA government had signed an agreement with Japan in 2013".

While Modi called the project as a harbinger of change, the Congress called the bullet train as a "chunavi bullet train" (election bullet train) as Gujarat, the home state of Modi, is all set to host the Assembly elections later this year.

Singh also said: "At this rate it will take years and years to complete since basics like land acquisition, intricate details are yet to be completed".

So, the critics of Modi government at the Centre raised questions over starting the expensive bullet train project when the priority should have been to refurbish the already existing railway network which badly needs attention from the top brush of the current regime.

"The government has completely abdicated its responsibility towards safety to the crores of rail passengers who travel daily on trains".

Supporters of the project say high speed trains will lead to improved commuter convenience, reduced congestion in big cities, more business, and improved infrastructure along the route.
