The 2010 Commonwealth Games the most expensive Commonwealth Games ever

Do you know the 2010 Commonwealth Games the most expensive Commonwealth Games ever?
The official total budget estimated for hosting the Games is Rs-11,494 crore (US$2.5 billion) and this amount excludes non-sports-related infrastructure development in the city like airports, roads and other structures. Business Today magazine estimates that the games cost 300 billion(US$6.51 Billion).
Delhi bid won by a margin of 46 votes to 22, confirming India's first successful bid for the Games
India shifted the balance in its favor in the second round of voting with a promise that it would provide US$100,000 to each participating country, along with air tickets, boarding, lodging and transport. The successful 2003 Afro-Asian Games held in Hyderabad was also seen as having showed India has the resources, infrastructure and technical know-how to stage a big sporting event. India also thanked Latif Butt, former vice president of the Olympic Council of Asia, for his support in the winning bid, by saying, "You played a vital role in the Commonwealth Games 2010 being allotted to India.
The official song of the 2010 Commonwealth Games Jiyo Utho Bado Jeeto was composed and performed by the Indian musician A. R. Rahman. The song's title is based on the slogan of the games, "Come out and play". The song is penned by Mehboob in Hindi with a sprinkling of English words. It was released on 28 August 2010 & costing of the song is 5 corer.
At last I would like to say that India is hosting the most expensive Commonwealth Games ever but the world is ready to appreciate us in spite of criticizing. I don't why foreigners are not ready to accept our achievement & greatness, when ever we are organizing ant big event every time they are ready to criticize us. If India is a poor place to stay than why cricketers from every nation want to play in IPL(Indian premier league) & why every year millions of foreign tourists are coming India. None of the foreign cricketer ever dare to criticize India & IPL, what to talk about withdrawing name from IPL means foreign athletes are making unnecessary fuse for publicity. It's a shameful act & they have to bag apology, if they are the true sportsman.
