Former Punjab minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran Laxmi Kanta Chawla has rapped Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal for alleged apathy towards the common man and asked them to forget about the “bullet” train.
In a video that went viral on Wednesday, Chawla is seen onboard a train, appealing to the Modi government to “have mercy on the common man”.
“I am on board the Saryu-Yamuna Express for 24 plus eight hours. This train is running nine hours behind schedule. For God’s sake, forget about bullet train, focus on the trains that are already running,” she said in the video.
“Modi ji, the public is distressed. Whose achche din (good times) have come, we don’t know. But most certainly, achche din have not come for the common man, for the poor and the unemployed. I have myself seen engineering diploma holder youth doing menial jobs. What have you given them?” she added.
