India is hosting FIFA Under – 19 World Cup in October this year. The Prime Minister Shri NarendraModi has called for the support of not only children, but also parents to encourage(प्रोत्साहित करें) boys and girls to play football and develop both skill and fitness. The tournament will be a milestone event(मील का पत्थर घटना) in many ways, but perhaps most lasting aspect will be Mission XI Million, which is a grassroot programme designed to encourage children to play this popular game.
Keeping in view of the appeal of the Prime Minister, the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) have been tasked to conduct ‘Oorja’, - CAPFs Under-19 Football Talent Hunt Tournament – 2017.
