The present Bullet train will only help the business people of both Gujarat and Mumbai. The total cost must be born by those two states and not by all the states. It''s a fancy for them , at the cost of the rest of the country. Bullet trains are for reducing travel time for long distance travelers like connecting Delhi to South Capitals. When the Govt will take up this route?

This Bullet train project is luxurious and not affordable to common man. It is waste of time and money, it should be scrapped completely. Instead improve present conditions of expressways and railway services first. There are so many potholes on all road connecting Ahmedabad or Delhi or Goa.

Whether its the Central Government or the State Government, any projects undertaken by the State or the Country, for the betterment of the country''s citizens should not be allowed to be stopped by the Illiterate rural brigade, whose only interest is greed to extract more compensation from the Public purse.

I agree that the farmers need to be adequately compensated for land. However, to ask for current land price is not fair. The current land price is because of the project itself and the benefits the bulletvtrain is expected to provide. The price shoukd pre- bullet yrain project costs. If the land costs are kept high no worth while project can be developed and this will not help the cause of industrialization and hence job creation.

This is the problem with mega project. The farmer who lost the land has to suffer and the neighborhod land owner enjoy the benefits at the cost of land lost farmers. Is it natural justice. Govt should give good compensation to the farmer who given his land for project

Govt. must implement and complete those projects first which are planned 50 years ago, on priority basis. With sudden implementation of such projects it will create chaos among society.
