Modi and Abe Flag Off Bullet Train Project

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe laid the foundation stone for a high speed rail link between Ahmedabad and Mumbai that will see bullet trains running at 320 km per hour, slashing travel time dramatically and marking a quantum leap in rail technology for India.

The high speed train corridor will also boost economic growth by giving an impetus to the industrial sector while creating more jobs, the Indian prime minister said.

“Prime Minister Modi is a far sighted leader. Two years ago, he decided to bring high speed railways to India. We have committed to help India to realise its vision,” said Abe, who laid the foundation stone along with the Indian Prime Minister.
