Ideas for India Summit 2023: At ABP Network’s special ‘Ideas of India Summit 2023’, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnab on Friday (February 24) took a dig at former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray while referring to the bullet train. He said that Thackeray had nothing to do with development work when he was the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnab said, “Earlier when Uddhav Thackeray was there, he was not interested in any developmental work. He had a different setup to work with, but as soon as Eknath Shinde came in, he gave all remaining approvals to the bullet rail project.
He says whenever he sees the presentation, some changes are visible. Earlier there was a pillar of 148 km but now it has been pillared up to 152 km. Although only a few large machines are imported, most are made in India. While showing the video, Vaishnav said that the railway stations are being built fast. Showing pictures of November 2022, November 2023 and January 2023, he explained how much work had been done.
Prime Minister Modi mentioned
At the summit, Railway Minister Vaishnab said that PM Modi guides every step. He claimed that the development of railways is also necessary to bring about changes in the economy. After listening to our ideas about Madoi, the Prime Minister suggested.
What about the Bande Bharat train?
Referring to the Vande Bharat train, Ashwini Vaishnav said that we need a world class train. When we showed the design of the train from outside to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that only our people will design and prepare the train. The challenge was huge because there are only 8 countries in the world that have developed a train that can reach 160 km per hour.
Please tell that in Maharashtra Eknath Shinde formed government with BJP and became Chief Minister himself. From then on, the tussle started between the leaders of the Shinde clan and the leaders of the Uddhav clan.
