The Italian football team has found new bunch of supporters after they made their way to the finals of the World Cup - Congress workers. Party workers offered prayers at the Choti Patan Devi Mandir in Patna for Italy's success against France on Sunday. "We are praying for Italy to win because this is Rahul Gandhi's maternal home," said Rakesh Kumar Tillu, general secretary of the Bihar Youth Congress. The yagya featured a football and a specially invited priest. No stone has been left unturned and no expense spared in trying to make it a grand affair. The youth congress workers who organised it have also promised to distribute 100 kilos of ladoos in the city if Italy does indeed win the World Cup.
