22 die in Stampede at parel! Fix the local train problem - we don't need bullet trains!
This petition had 1,498 supporters
80 Lakh common people like you and me take the local trains in Mumbai. One such man would never have thought that he will never see his wife and children again, because he was to die in stampede. A young girl, going to college or work, would never have imagined her parents will never see her again.
Do these people deserve to lose their life simple because of infrastructural problems?
How would you feel if someone near and dear to you died because of a railway mishap?
Not only local trains, even our inter-state trains are suffering and derailing of trains are a very common phenomenon. In this state, is it really more important to have a bullet train? The bullet train reduced the journey time by 4 hours, which can also be achieved by taking a flight. What are we trying to do here?
By choosing bullet trains, we are giving a preference to the rich who may sometimes use the bullet train, over the poor and middle class who travel by local and inter-state trains on a daily basis. We are saying that, these people don't deserve a good life, or even a life at all.
