  1. Dear Sir,

    How come in this juncture when china is up against Bharat and gearing for war, the Bharatiya Government (NCERT/Railways) awarded the PROJECT to Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Co. Ltd. (STEC), a company from our BIGGEST ENEMY country???

    We adore the Modi Government, and have HUGE hope for his governance, BUT how can you guys do this???????
    We live abroad and regularly send Forex to our motherland and NOW am REALLY feeling shame as all the chinese people abroad are NOW teasing us the Bharatiya diaspora, that you guys ONLY brag cannot do without china!!!!.

    We the entire Bharatiya diaspora earnestly REQUEST to cancel this order to this chinese company.

    Kumar, S.

  2. This is a shame where I am my friends are trying to remove all the Chinese items from our daily lives and on the other hand you are giving the contract to them. Aren’t you bothered of our country owner and respect for people.

  3. Hello Sir,
    What an Irony m seeing here… L&T / Tata are not awarded because of 44 Crore loss of bidding… TATA who gives all their Penny to PM Care Fund … Why it can not be awarded to TATA…. I am Modi Govt supporter… but this is something not good….

  4. Because all of you trusted Modi he is able to achieve such things with ease. I am India and we know this guy so never voted for him. Because of North Indians the whole country is suffering now.

  5. Dear sir? Angrejo ki nokar. U non hindu commenting using hindu name. Baago yaha se.

    Vahan se paisa bhejti to ehsaan karti kya modi ji pe?? Kitni hazaar crore bhejati tu?

    chinese indian bhai bhai. Brothers me ladai hoti hai. i still use chinese lights and crackers on Diwali and chinese pichkari on holi
    Mere mobile bi chinese. Why are you so upset on choti si baat??? Kaam karo apna.

    Har har modi …. Jai mahakal jai hindu jai mata di

    • Abe champu Tata ne to diye na 1500 cr Indian government ko, kitne zero aate he pata he kya tujhe. To khali 40 cr ka diff tha phir bhi Chinese company Ko contract diya, Aur 1 bat sale Chinese border pe ja aur phir bol Hindu Chinese bhai bhai, 2-4 late padenge g…d pe, Apne 20 soldiers mare Gaye , kuch to sharam kar.

  6. Kumar S. You need to be a little clever and understand that most Indian companies already have hundreds of projects, they just take part in these biddings to shave off chinese profit margin to an extremely thin slice and after all most of the money government will give is gonna be spent on Indian labour and construction material and nothing is imported except some technologies so at the end chinese are subsidizing the project cost by under-bidding at the expense of their taxpayers and they do the same thing in solar project biddings too so this is harming their own people more than it does to us and hence we are the ones benefitting and not them…. One of the main reasons why since Modi has come we have seen rapid infra development and electrification because now Indian companies don’t cheat the Indian public like they used to, you also need to understand that their are more enemies within than outside

  7. Dear all it’s time to do something against this act.
    We can write bring this act to PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE SITE.
    and Apple them to cancel this tender.
    As still we r not late.
    Still work order might not been rewarded to the company, and advance won’t be given to the company.

  8. TATA should have been given the project. Make in India should be done in every single level, from top to bottom.

    Government should endorse Make in India, if it wants public to endorse the same.

    Same goes with 5g technology. Our own indigenously made 5g technology developed by IIT Chennai should have been endorsed by the government.

    We are hopeful, that the government will work towards the empowerment of our country
