one's got to give it to the mayawati government and to the jaypee group, indeed flawless. compare it to CWG. both central and delhi governments, congress led, no chance the two would have had a go at each other, on the contrary it would have been all coordination, if anything. the budget of CWG kept increasing at quite a pace, no one ever talks about the cost over runs, CWG if not for the indian athletes, was a shame and corruption was to hit the hilt and bring more shame. bring in mayawati government, from UP and i am sure the chatter would have been how worse can they do it than the CWG. rahul G made sure his agitations on land acquisition happened around this arena, the farmers were mobilized, the very race was threatened with large scale agitations during the 3 days of F1, the state government was threatened in every possible way by the central government, heck the legal tangle was used but better sense prevailed on part of the SC. not a glitch, yes, a dog showed up, the tracks were dusty, the air was dusty but then first race ever of the scale it was, a few things here and there are expected, and there was absolutely no reason why the tracks were dusty, but over all jaypee and mayawati indeed delivered under various obstacles, though to his credit jai prakash gaur is pretty well connected with all the political parties in india, so that might have helped.
