Vadodara: Using the opportunity of the rollout of the first indigenous Metro train manufactured in his State, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday sought to send a message to the Centre — “A Made-in-Gujarat is going to Delhi.”
In what is seen as a loaded quip, Mr. Modi’s comment in the backdrop of the failed Bharatiya Janata Party’s bid to return to power at the Centre drew a loud applause from the gathering.
He followed it up with another remark. “I can assure you that the train made in Gujarat can become a cause of huge worry in Delhi.”
Bombardier Transportation India (BTI) rolled out the first train from its manufacturing unit in Savli in Vadodara. The sleek four-coach train — Bombardier Movia — was handed over to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Chief E. Sreedharan.
Mr. Modi pleaded for the inclusion of a bullet train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai in the next budget. — PTI
