FULL TRANSCRIPT

Madam Speaker, when the name of Japan comes, there is a common feeling that Bullet Train is coming. But the question which I want to ask the hon. Minister is different. The railway project which they are trying to implement is Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Railway Project. But I would like to know from the Minister as to whether the infrastructure for running such

But I would like to know from the Minister as to whether the infrastructure for running such high-speed trains can be made available in a country like India where we are not able to run Rajdhani and Duronto trains on time. These trains also run late and they are not able to match up with their estimated speed. So, I want to know as to how far they are going 02.08.2017 jr-sh Uncorrected / Not for Publication 18 to be technically well equipped and how serious they are to cope up with the infrastructural set up to run such

So, I want to know as to how far they are going 02.08.2017 jr-sh Uncorrected / Not for Publication 18 to be technically well equipped and how serious they are to cope up with the infrastructural set up to run such high-speed trains approximately at 350 km. per hour.

Then, I would also like to know as to how far they are going to take safety and security issues into consideration while running these high-speed trains.
