Ahmedabad- Mumbai one way ticket on bullet train is Rs 75,000: Kejriwal

New Delhi, July 20: The former Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) founder Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday came up with a bizarre calculation about bullet train fares.

In a 44-second video clipping, he is shown as speaking that the "Ahemdabad to Mumbai one way ticket fare on bullet train will be Rs 75,000 per person."

On July 8, Railway Minister D V Sadananda Gowda had said that the first dedicated bullet train project will be launched on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor route for which many feasibility studies have been conducted.

While presenting his maiden railway budget in the Lok Sabha, he had also announced that other proposed routes for running the new bullet train services include Delhi-Agra, Delhi-Chandigarh, Mysore-Bangalore-Chennai, Mumbai-Goa and Hyderabad-Secunderabad.

After the budget was presented, Kejriwal also took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the railway budget.

"Instead of increasing seats, punctuality, Modi has given priority to high speed train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The whole focus was on this Rs 60,000 crore project," he had said.

Here is the video, where he is seen speaking that Ahemdabad to Mumbai one way ticket on bullet train is Rs 75,000:
