日本支援のインド新幹線計画 農地取り上げに農民反乱


India farmers rebel against Modi’s bullet train,Financial Times,18.11.21


The route for India’s first bullet train, a $15bn flagship project in the government’s drive to upgrade national infrastructure, goes directly through Navinbhai Patel’s house. 


Outside the mango farmer’s modest home in Valsad, a village in western Gujarat state, authorities have left stone and chalk markers to indicate the path where trains will run on their 530km journey between Mumbai and Gujarat’s industrial hub of Ahmedabad.


But Mr Patel, 40, is unwilling to surrender his home and four acres of farmland to the project, backed by Japanese capital and technology in one of India’s biggest international deals in recent years.


“My family has lived here for four generations,” said Mr Patel, whose household is one of 693 in Valsad district alone whose land will be required for the bullet train. “I’m not moving.”
