The second-phase of polling for the 182-seats-Gujarat assembly will be on December 14. The counting of votes will take place on December 18.
On Sunday Modi was in Bharuch where he addressed a rally and took a jibe at the Congress for opposing the bullet train project.
Modi and his government have often faced opposition fire over the ambitious project linking Ahmedabad and Mumbai. “Those opposing the bullet train project should travel on bullock carts. We won’t mind,” he said during an election rally in Bharuch.
The Rs 1.1 lakh crore bullet train project is being built by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Modi said the Congress government too wanted the high-speed rail corridor project but failed to clear it.
“Imagine how much employment will it generate for the region, for Bharuch. I ask you where will the cement for the bullet train (infrastructure) come from, iron come from, labourers come from? Won’t that be from India? And who will be buying that? Japan. Isn’t it a big deal?” he asked.
