NEW DELHI: The second bullet train after the Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor will run from Delhi to Varanasi, a distance of 782 km, and could complete the journey in just two hours and 40 minutes.
The project connecting the capital to the pilgrimage city, which is also PM Modi's Lok Sabha constituency, while passing through Lucknow has been fast-tracked ahead of the UP polls next year.
As per the report, the travel time between Delhi and Lucknow (506 km) is likely to be 1 hour 45 minutes while travel between Delhi to Kolkata (1,513 km) will take 4 hours 56 minutes.
Wow! Way to go guys.This guy Modi sure seems to be in a hurry to take India into the 21 century.
Are we not already in the 21st century?
Though this is 21st century, but MMS, Sonia Vadra like people have put a brake to Hindustan''s progress, thus it is like 20th century. But NAMO has taken us to real 21st century.
Who should be prised then? I agree if you say the Railway minister!
Never heard of Maglev, to sit praising the Bullet, which is nowhere even near it?
Nope...Congress was still holding us in the 19th century.....
No as per BJP we were in first century 2 years before. Now in 10th century and after another 3 years in 21st century.
By calendar yes but Not yet in terms of Development!
Even after 68 years , only because of the former corrupt Govt India could no emerge as a developed Country .
Bullet Train waiting for 15 years, not sure how long it will take
The Chinese have already Maglev, the fastest, most comfortable & best train on earth 2016, that Indians have not even heard of! Now say wow, if u dare & can!
If the train runs well, the credit goes to Modi. If accident happen, the blame goes to Congress whose time the tracks were laid.
