Shiv Sena criticises PM Narendra Modi's bullet train project

Shiv Sena threatens to pull out from Maharashtra govt

The Sena in its mouthpiece Saamana has said that the road show with Japanese Prime Minister was followed by the bullet train project's foundation stone-laying ceremony; but after the Maratha community held a huge road show, it received nothing from the government. "How long will this time pass go on?" the Sena said.

The state has asked the Centre and railway ministry to adjust the Rs 125 crore preliminary share of the state in the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project with the cost of the plot of land in BKC. The land and money will come from Gujarat and Maharashtra, and Tokyo will rake in all the profits. But the point is that no timeline was defined for that, the Sena pointed out. Party sources acknowledged that the launch of the bullet train project could consolidate urban votes in the BJP's favour.

"(Former Prime Minister) Pandit (Jawaharlal) Nehru laid the foundation of several projects, from Bhakra Nangal to Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, to ensure the country advances in technology and science.

The announcement of Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train has received mixed reactions from the people of Mumbai, but they were unanimous in their demand for reforms in Mumbai's local trains over the introduction of a bullet train. "All those projects were needed by the country".

Kharge further said that when the project was started, it was worth Rs. 1,10,000 crore and in the next four-five years, it will be worth Rs. 1,30,000 crore. "When we raised the issue of complete waiver of farmers" loans, the CM had warned of "anarchy' in the fund-starved state".

The party also slammed the government for having 12 halts for the 500-km Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project, saying even Rajdhani Express did not have so many stops for a similar distance and "it was done just to mislead the people". "Now, you (CM) are putting Rs 30,000-plus for the PM's rich dream", the Sena taunted.

One Mumbaikar was of the opinion that bringing bullet trains when local trains and platforms are already in poor condition, was a wrong move and would increase the debts. Singh said rather than high-speed trains, safety of regular trains was more important given the recent accidents.
