On Thursday, Trump upped the crowd size by three million at a ''Keep America Great'' rally in Colorado.

"I hear, they are going to have 10 million people. They say anywhere from six to 10 million people are going to be showing up along the route to one of the largest stadiums in the world, the largest cricket stadium in the world, which is brand new and beautiful," said Trump, who is seeking reelection in the November presidential polls.

However, the city's civic body on February 16 said that more than 1 lakh participants have confirmed for the 22 km roadshow. But many noted that Ahmedabad's population in the last 2011 census was 55 lakh or 5.5 million and is estimated to be 86 lakh or 8.6 million in 2020.
