Mumbai: The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama's visit to the city.
"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.
About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.

The entire hotel. Seriously!
If thisis true, then this sickens and upsets me.
Is there anyone....ANYONE in this government of ours who is the least bit concerned about this? $200 million per day... This represents the annual gross revenues of many fortune 500 companies.
This is so wasteful... I am outraged more and more every and this vanity master in the WH.
I can’t believe that any other president has lived this high on the hog.... What did it cost when Bush traveled?
Why must this man completely take over then entire hotel? 200 rooms? Have we gone crazy?
$1 Billion Deniros?
And the purpose of this trip?
1st thing Congress can do is cut back, drastically, appropriations for the White Hut.
Way to go, Obama!....STAY THERE, ASSCLOWN!
Couldn’t he just STAY THERE?
Why come back?
To get jobs for the people of India... via moving our companies and technology there.....spreading the wealth around.
That is $66,000 per day for each person attending!
Spitzer would have trouble spending that much a day on . . . entertainment . . . and Marie Antoinette would would have the same problem for elaborate clothes and other luxuries.
Ignoring the detail that the press are probably not spending that mush, so it's more than $66k a day for the Obama Regime, I have to wonder just how far over the top today's ruling class has gone.
Barry will be gone for 10 days, at 200 million per day ,
that’s a trillion gazillion bucks, plus he’ll be going to
Hawaii in December for another vacation .
Today America will tell him what we think of him.
They should try ‘GO TO MEETING’!
I think Baraq and MooseChelle have an inkling the party may well be over in 26 months.
So they are going to milk the system to the max until then.
They will be rich all their lives, but can only live as royalty until Jan 013.
We’d all do better if that money was handed out to every American.....rather than his handing India jobs and industry to their country...I’m sure the unemployed here could use it.
Hmmm. Maybe he knows something we don’t about his security situation. Theyr’e buying out all the rooms at the Taj Mahal, too, for his India visit.
“Crack baby children of SEIU women starving with no relief in sight” because money was spent on Mumbai room service
Every once in a while a post such as yours will make me actually laugh out loud. And so,... LOL!
200 million a day???
That's approximately the same per-day cost as the Afghanistan war. That cannot be correct. But my heart tells me it's all too true.
