Modi, Abe kick-start work for India’s first bullet train: “Technology is not anti-poor”

Agencies, Ahmedabad

Giving a greater push to the development agenda of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi especially in the run up to the polls in his home state Gujarat, Mr Modi and his visiting Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe today jointly laid the foundation of the country’s first bullet train project.

Speaking on the occasion, under attack for being pro-rich in framing policies of his now over three-year-old regime, Prime Minister Modi said technology need not be pro-rich and if used effectively it can in fact fight poverty.

“There is often a concern raised that new technology is meant for the rich only.

But technology can also be used for empowerment of the poor.
This is the aim of our government,” he said.
