Rahul Gandhi calls Gujarat's bullet train a 'magic train' but not in a complimentary way
NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today called the bullet train Gujarat is set to get, a "magic train", but he didn't mean it as a compliment.
He said it would be a "magic train" because it would never materialise, unless, that is, a Congress government comes to power. The bullet train, a 508-km Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Project, entails an estimated cost of Rs. 1 lakh crore.
"It should not be called a bullet train. It should be referred to as a magic train. It will never be constructed, if at all it is ever made it is going to be in Congress regime," said the Congress chief speaking in Amethi, his Lok Sabha constituency, where he arrived today on a two-day visit, reported news agency ANI.
The Congress president has said in the past that the bullet train project is a misplaced priority for the nation. "Only Modi ji and his suit-boot friends will travel in it," he said, by which he meant the rich people.
"In 2016, nearly 200 people died in train accidents. My priority would be to utilize such a large sum of money in improving safety, so no one dies in train accidents," he said at an even in Gujarat last December.

Can someone kindly remand this chap during decades of congress misrule in the centre hundreds of train accidents have taken place and several thousands lives lost. What did Congress do to enhance safety? Nothing, nada. It only added trains after trains each year as political appeasement, when experts were screaming that adding trains will compound accidents. So many trains runs on the same pair of rails everyday that the repair works can''t be done. Rahul must know that India needs bullet trains ...

Congress had 70 years to improve the quality of rail services but all they did was looting and corruption. The " Magic Train " will not happen because under Congress rule the money turns magic and into Congress bank accounts.
