He laid the foundation stone for the country’s first bullet train project connecting Mumbai and Ahmedabad along with his Indian counterpart Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 14th September, 2017. This is a very ambitious project for India and a lot of eyes are set on it. The successful and timely delivery will pave way for many high speed rail projects. The centre in Vadodara will play a pivotal role in ensuring trained personal for successful operations of high speed trains in India.
