TMC MP Says Bullet Train is a 'Hoax and False Promise'
New Delhi: The bullet train concept is not possible in India and it is a "hoax" and a false promise of the government, the TMC Thursday said in the Lok Sabha.
Participating in the debate in Lok Sabha on demand of grants for Railways, TMC member Sudip Bandyopadhyay said these can be called as high speed trains and not bullet trains.
"It is a hoax and a false promise," Bandyopadhyay said, adding bullet trains have a separate structure.
Vacancies for gangmen have reached two lakh and there is also a shortage of rail drivers, he said.
Between 3 am and 5 am, rail drivers feel sleepy and during that time accidents happen," he said.
