To study the functioning of the high-speed trains in China, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today travelled from Tianjin to Beijing on a bullet train.

The Chief Minister covered the 140-km distance in 31 minutes, with the train cruising at a speed of 295 kmph, a release from his office here said.

On the third-day of his current China tour, Naidu was “impressed” with the bullet train and wanted a similar service introduced between AP’s new capital city Amaravati and port city Visakhapatnam.

Chandrababu wanted his team to explore the possibility of introducing bullet or high-speed train services between Amaravati and Hyderabad as well, it said.

The Chief Minister had also raised this issue last week with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, during the inauguration of a superfast train between Vijayawada and Secunderabad.

“You call it bullet train or anything else, we want such trains from Amaravati to Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam to cover the distances in two to three hours,” he had told Prabhu.

    CM Garu such Fast trains are there in an and other countries also. I boarded the train in China and an earlier.In an the trains run on time. I was on a 15 day official tour to an. We were to change train at the 2nd level in Kyoto and the time gap is 4 minutes. I was wondering whether we can make it. The train arrived and through escalator we were there at the Compartment before 1 minute. In India it is entirely different. “Chalta hai” atude even in Air Lines. Refer to the dela Air India Flight in which Union Minister Mr.Venkaiah Naidu was to travel from New Delhi to Hyderabad and the Pilot did not turn up in time as he was struck up in traffic jam. If such delay is there in countries like an,the Airlines will be sewed for millions of Dollars.Before we embark on Bullet trains let us provide minimum facility of Drinking Water in Penger Trains at least in Reserved Compartments . NDTVVenkaiah Naidu Tweet Shames Air India, Gets This Reason For Flight DelayAll India | Edited by Deepshikha Ghosh | Updated: June 28, 2016 18:25 ISTA furious Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu today hit out at Air India in a series of tweets after a dela flight led to a missed appointment. He got an apology, and an unusual reason - the pilot was stuck in a traffic jam.The minister says he reached the airport at around 12.30 pm for his flight to Hyderabad at around 1.15 pm, only to be told that the pilot had not showed up. That set off a volley on social media against the flag carrier.Mr Naidu, who was reportedly heading for a meeting on the "Swachch Bharat" campaign, said he waited for half an hour and left. The flight left at 2.30 pm.Dr.A.Jagadeesh Nellore(AP)
