Pradip Bhandari of Jan Ki Baat interviewed the MP of Muzzarfarnagar, Sanjeev Balyan, who is ready to play football against Bollywood personalities in the upcoming Football for the Nation. Mr Balyan said the occasion was a noble one because of what all it aimed to fulfil. Popularizing the sport is important and this event would do exactly that by promoting it. With the FIFA Under-17 World Cup being held in India next year, India has a lot to be proud of.
The buzz about upcoming football match is worthy: its been called Football Ka Mahamuqabla, Football for the Nation, All Stars v/s India Parliament and given many other sensational titles. On 24th of July, Football for the Nation, is going to take place at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, where celebrities like Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Abhishek Bachan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Dino Morea, and others would play against some of the Indias biggest Parliamentarians like Babul Supriyo, Manoj Tiwari, Pravesh Sahib Singh Verma. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has been announced as the Brand Ambassador of this event, ready to kick-off the match.
A charity match of this scale serves many purposes. It is associated with government initiatives, to support the noble cause of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao campaign. The match proceeds too were going to the same campaigns. The other aim of the event is to promote young blooming talent within India.
