Members of Parliament cutting across party lines participated with enthusiasm in a mass awareness programme for promoting sports culture in the country, particularly the game of football.

The function was organised by the ministry of youth affairs and sports to promote Mission XI Million Programme for taking football across India in the run up to FIFA U-17 Football World Cup to be hosted in October this year.
