When AV spoke to Raju Shetti, Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana Chief he said, "The rural areas of Maharashtra remain underdeveloped and the government is talking about bullet trains".

The Railways will conduct a feasibility survey for the Mumbai-Nagpur bullet train project and give its approval for the same.

The bullet trains in Japan get cleaned in mere seven minutes, and it gets ready to run again.

The Congress on Thursday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the launch of the bullet train and questioned him on its economic viability.

The editorial concluded by adding, "The Rajdhani Express is India's current bullet train".

"The Prime Minister's dream is not of the common man, but for the interest of the wealthy and the business class, and this is the reason for making Piyush Goyal the railway minister".

Victims in deadly Queens bus crash identified

Who does the Bullet train help?

Of the 508-km route and 12 stations of the bullet train, 120 km and four stations will fall in Maharashtra. "It will only serve one section- Gujarati businessman- and its hidden agenda is the upcoming Gujarat elections", said Manisha Khandye, Spokesperson for the Shiv Sena. This entire requirement is expected to be consumed in a period of about three years, thus generating a demand of about 2 million tonne of cement annually during the construction phase of the project. As India will commemorate its diamond jubilee in 2022 to mark its 75 years of Independence, the NDA government has pulled up the socks to ensure that a decade-long dream of having the first bullet train in India realized.

The editorial further alleged, "Whoever is saying that the project will generate employment is lying. The Government should take care of that", said Bharat. "Japan will bring everything required, right from the machinery to labourers from there for the project." an editorial in the party mouthpiece said.

"Even as Mumbai suburb's local trains suffer daily, a bullet train will be running between Ahmedabad and Mumbai", commented the Shiv Sena.

He added that Rs 60,000 crore was being spent on land acquisition and the estimated Rs 1,10,000 crore cost of the project could further escalate by the time it was implemented. "The demands for loan waiver of farmers were being made since the past many years".
