Modi government launched 'electoral bullet train', says Congress”

Congratulating the people of Ahmedabad and Mumbai, PM Modi said: "Bullet train brings fast pace, fast development, fast technology and fast results".

That Congress said it was not against "any project", but in the past three-and-a-half years, the party had seen how "the Prime Minister uses big ticket projects, primarily for elections and pushes projects just before the polls".

The country's principal opposition party, the Congress, accused the Modi government for devising the same policy of announcing packages and benefits ahead of every state election.

Mr. Kharge also said that the BJP, that has promised "bullet trains", has done away with "Railway Budget", a reflection of the status and capacity of the railways. Speaking to DNA, Khedut Samaj president Jayesh Patel said, "We sought the details of the project from district collectors, but they are unable to provide any information". The project is expected to cost Rs 1.08 lakh-crore.

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".

Congress spokesperson R.P.N. Singh, too, pointed out that since the BJP had come to power at the Centre in 2014, 259 passengers had been killed and 973 injured in 29 major railway accidents - despite this abysmal track record, the government, he stressed, was paying no attention to railway safety. The top speed of the fastest train is less than 100 miles per hour at present.

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

"The project will bring both the business and speed", he added.

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