One Billion Hotel Rooms?

Lalit Modi, described by Shilpa Shetty in an interview to the official IPL magazine 20/20 as “the brainchild behind the IPL”, said on TV a couple of hours ago:

We want everyone from India to come in [to South Africa] for the last few weeks of the IPL.

Like, I know he’s a stud at logistics and all that, but this could be one bridge too far for Modi. Everyone from India, it seems.
