Praful Patel, the President of the all India Football Federation (AIFF), put his football skills on show at the Parliament complex in New Delhi, on Wednesday, 29th March.

The chief of Indian football looked pleased with his efforts as he looked on attempts by Prasun Bannerjee and Babul Supriyo, all of whom took part in the Mass Football Distribution Program organized by Vijay Goel in the nation's capital.

It was a coterie of Member of Parliaments (MPs) who joined the Indian FA's chief and the Minister for Sports for a kickabout including Sumitra Mahajan, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Roopa Ganguly and Bhaichung Bhutia, the former India captain.

The exercise has been developed with aim to bring about awareness in football ahead of the U17 World Cup, scheduled to be held all over India, later this year. Goel also expressed hope, over the popular social media platform Twitter, that the participant MPs would spread the love of football in their respective constituencies. As per the program's mechanics, every Rajya Sabha MP would recieve a football.

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on the football prowess of our AIFF President!
