The Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor, popularly known as the bullet train project, must be given the name 'Vande Mataram', Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Sanjay Kelkar said on Sunday.
        
It should be called the 'Vande Mataram' bullet train, Kelkar, who is the legislator from Thane, told reporters.
        
Kelkar said he would take up this demand with the Union government soon as such a move will increase "nationalism and love for the nation among citizens".
        
Speaking on the visit of Union Minister Anurag Thakur to Thane district on February 14 as part of the BJP's preparations for the 2024 general elections, Kelkar, who is the Kalyan Lok Sabha seat, said several meetings will be held.
        
Thakur will meet the party cadre and several segments of society during his one-day visit to boost the BJP's chances.
        
Incidentally, the Kalyan Lok Sabha seat is represented by Shrikant Shinde, who is the son of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.
        
Shinde's Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena and the BJP are part of the ruling alliance in the state since June last year.
        
Kelkar said the BJP and BSS will contest the polls in alliance.
