Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe today launched India's first bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said that the project is very costly and the fare will be known only when it gets started. But "in my opinion, it should have been between New Delhi and Kolkata passing through Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, which have maximum number of unemployed and poor," Mr Yadav said.
The project, covering the 508-km stretch, is expected to be completed by 2022.
