Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet train will give impetus to manufacturing, construction sector: Goyal

Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet train will give impetus to manufacturing, construction sector: Goyal

Ahmedabad, Sept 14 (UNI) The Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet train project will be a stimulus for India's manufacturing and construction sector while creating new job opportunities, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said in his introductory remark at the foundation laying ceremony of the ambitious project here today. He said this project will open up huge job opportunities for people, apart from boosting economies all along its route. Stating that an incident in a train in South Africa inspired Mahatma Gandhi to fight against racism and apartheid, Mr Goyal said, "We are thankful that we got the opportunity to do this at Sabamarti". This bullet train is a symbol of harmony between Indians and Japanese, Mr Goyal said. Mr Goyal said that 30 years ago, the partnership with Maruti changed in face of the Indian automobile industry. Similarly, the bullet train would change the scenario of the transport sector, he said. “I am confident the Japanese technology of Bullet train will give an impetus to the ambitious 'Make in India' programme of the country,” Mr Goyal said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe today laid the foundation stones for the Mumbai Ahmedabad Bullet train and also a high speed training institute at Vadodara.
