Prime Minister Modi was returning to Gandhinagar from a meeting in Ahmedabad. PM Modi is currently on a tour of Gujarat. He flagged off the Vande Bharat Express between Gandhinagar and Mumbai today. Boarding the train, the Prime Minister traveled from Gandhinagar to Kalupur station in Ahmedabad.
Addressing the public on the occasion, the Prime Minister said, “Today’s India sees speed, speed, as a guarantee of rapid growth. This emphasis on speed is reflected today in the Katishakti National Master Plan, the National Logistics Policy, and is evident in our drive to increase the speed of railways.
He said the Vande Bharat train launched between Ahmedabad and Mumbai will make travel between the two biggest cities of the country convenient and also reduce the distance.
Vande Bharat makes 100 times less noise inside a train than an airplane, the Prime Minister said. People who are used to traveling by planes will love Vande Bharat after experiencing the train.
Modi further said, ‘India of the 21st century is going to gain new momentum from the nation’s cities. It is necessary to continuously modernize our cities to meet the changing needs of the changing times. The transport system in the city should be modern, there should be seamless connectivity, one mode of transport should support the other.
