PM Modi's bullet train project faces land acquisition hurdle in Gujarat.
The Prime Minister’s favourite project - the bullet train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai - is not only facing hurdles in land acquisition in Gujarat and Maharashtra but may evolve into a major election issue in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, say political pundits here.
