Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit back at opposition leaders for “targeting and mocking” semi-high speed train Vande Bharat Express, terming it an “insult” to engineers and technicians. “I salute engineering professionals, who will in future make a bullet train in India and run it also...I am getting letters from people who are hurt”, the PM said asking them, “Whether it is right to insult engineers and technicians? Is mocking them right. Can they be pardoned? Should they not be given right punishment at the right time.” He said the “country is proud of them (engineers) and their hard work.”
