P Chidambaram’s Jibe At PM Modi on Bullet train Project

Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram scaled up the attack on the bullet train project saying the high-speed train would like demonetisation, “kill everything else including safety” He was refering to yesterday’s in mumbai stampede tragedy at Elphinstone station bridge, Mumbai i n which 22 commuters died.

Chitambram  had earlier blamed demonetisation for the economic slowdown. A fortnight back, PM Modi had hosted Japanese Prime Minister in his home state Gujarat where the two leaders had laid the foundation for the project. Once the project is completed in 2023, the high-speed train can complete the 508 km distance between Ahmedabad and Mumbai in less than three hours.

 “Bullet train is not for ordinary people. It is an ego trip for the high & mighty,” Mr Chidambaram said in a series of tweets, taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is seen as the driving force behind the project.
