Italy loses match against Costa Rica. Congress calls for Bharat Bandh to protest

21, Jun 2014 By Ajoy Kumar Singha

Italy lost football World Cup match against Costa Rica today. Huge crowd of supporters watching the match late night in India were shocked when they saw Italian team could not score a goal against the Costa Rican team. The match finally ended 1-0 against Italy.

Congress Party leaders who were watching the match expressed their sympathy towards Madame and Sehzada. Congress Party workers who were out of work after the election were excited when Digvijay Singh suggested they should call a Bharat Bandh against this defeat. Singh said in a tweet “We should call a #BharatBandh. How can Italy lose a match when we have given all the powers to Madame to take decision on the outcome of ….”. His tweet was apparently incomplete due to twitter’s 140 character limit and truncated the tweet.

In a TV analysis after the match, Sanjay Jha suggested that Italian team should get lessons from and should be guided by able people like Rahul Gandhi ji. Mr. Jha even offered to invite the coach of the team to Congress Chintan Shivir to analyze the cause of the defeat.

Italy will be potentially out of the World Cup if they lose the match against Uruguay next. Congress Party is apparently deciding on a date to call Bharat Bandh so that FIFA takes appropriate action to keep the Italian team in the competition. Some party workers are even thinking of filing RTI application to know the cause of defeat of their dear team.
