Improve existing railways before building Bullet Train

This petition had 557 supporters

Indian Railways is in a state of misery, daily commute for entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region (Central, Western and Harbour Lines) is an apathy, India is the fastest growing economy of the world but railway lines for the financial capital is in dire state, daily 8 million people travel by trains in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, every year 3000 people die while commuting in trains in Mumbai Metropolitan Region alone, apart from this annually several thousand lives are lost due to derailment of trains, I would request everybody to stop the bullet train project till the infrastructure of Indian Railways is made at par with other railway systems of the world. The estimated budget of a single phase of bullet train between Mumbai-Ahmedabad is INR 88,000 Crore similar spending on Indian Railways shall make a huge difference, bullet train shall serve only negligible population of our country, and Indian Railways already serves the entire population of our country and is a lifeline for BPL (Below Poverty Line) families.
