Jaitley heckled during address on bullet train at seminar in Delhi

Union finance minister Arun Jaitley was heckled by a person during a seminar in Delhi on Sunday. While speaking on bullet train, the heckler interrupted him and asked the meaning of bullet in Hindi.

On this, Jaitley reprimanded him, saying he has been noticed once and he should be a little serious. "Be a little serious, you have been noticed once," Jaitley retorted.  

The heckler said that it is also a serious question. On Saturday, Jaitley had announced that the government will extend theterm of Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian by one year till October 2018.

Subramanian, a Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, was appointed India's Chief Economic Adviser (CEA) in October 2014. His term was for three years, which was to end on October 16.
