  1. I want to assure everyone that Delhi is very much capable to host common wealth games. Indian government is going to invest a huge amount of money i.e US$1.6 billion for preparation of CWG. So this is the most expensive CWG ever (compared to Manchester 2002 - approx. US$420 million, and Melbourne 2006 - approx. US$ 1.1 billion). This amount not included infrastructure development activities like roads, airports and flyovers.
