is the bullet train needed?, what is the use? so that gujjus can come to Mumbai for a drink and head back in the evening? mumbai needs more local trains not some bullet train. if gujjus want to come to Mumbai for a drink there are many flights from vadodara, ahmedabad to mumbai
hey, gujjus won't come to mumbai for a drink but to gamble on stock, n regarding drinks, they are used duplicate drinks n love it.
Mainly for travel of diamond merchants to travel to and fro as the diamond market has shifted to gujarat. That is why make bullet train from Delhi to Mumbai or Delhi to Bangalore this is a waste of tax payers money
It was a political stunt of Modiji has Modiji up till now spoken anything which he intends to implement, only dream selling.
Ab toh Pandemic ka bahana bhi hai... I'm waiting for a comeback speech
Modiji does not have a comeback speech on any subject as all are only dreams no fulfilment

The Bullet train is not fancy but need of the hour since our country is densely populated Airports and Aeroplanes are costly and cannot go to short distance dmall locations but Bullet Trains can go to small places at Lower cost and on less time.
We need more local Train which are cheapest mode in mumbai
You are not from mumbai hence you don't the pain of mumbaikar
Travling in a local time is nightmare
No bullet train is needed
Maha govt is opposing projects : Bullet train, Samruddhi Highway, Metro project (already canceled as without worksjhop it cant star) , Metro rail projects entirely in maharashtra, Naner Refinary , Jal Shivar Yojana. Only GOD knows how new jobs will be created and development will take place!
马哈拉施特邦政府反对各种项目：高铁、Samruddhi高速公路、地铁项目(已经取消)、炼油厂、Jal Shivar Yojana的地▃铁项目。只有天知道新的就业机会如何产生，发展∩如何实现!
Stupid Maharashtra govt n ppl of India . Should understand why bullet train is made... it not just for show.... it will be pride moments... as Japan has made bullet train 70yrs ago... n India is busy in reservations n caste policy... can’t even make something by its own... it’s just becoz of lazy ppl of india
Build UP to Gujarat and enjoy with Modi aache din
Waste of tax payer money , invest the same money in Air India and run it properly ...
Bullet train was propoganda instument of 2014
When crores of people were travel in unreserved compartments like cattles, is we really in need of bullet trains?
waste of public money already the economy has been hit badly due to COVID. Now this dream will hit the GDP further
We need to invest in UPGRADING our corrupt system rather than blowing up money on MOON LANDINGS and BULLET trains.
