New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was visibly annoyed on Sunday when a man interrupted him during an event here and sought to know the Hindi equivalent of ‘bullet train.
A visibly annoyed Jaitley then told him to be a “little serious”.
“Be a little serious please. You have been noticed once, thoda serious hone ka… gambhir hone ka bhi prayas kijiye (try to be serious).”
The man, however, persisted he had raised a “very serious” issue.
On September 14, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe laid in Ahmadabad in Gujarat the foundation stone of the country’s first 508-km high-speed bullet train between Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
