How much Langgar do we expect to serve?

It is expected that there will be 40 Langgar service points each serving at least 1,000 Veg Roti Rolls within two hours. Should all go to plan, the Veg Roti Roll Langgar is anticipated to reach some 40,000 people who would have turned up to cheer the 100 torch bearers on the 30-mile route on 21st July 2012.
