Chennai: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Saturday asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to attend the India-Pakistan cricket World Cup semi-final at Mohali next
Wednesday, saying it would create "undue pressure" on Indian
"It also would amount to betrayal of National Security Guard
(NSG) jawans who laid down their lives during the 2008 Mumbai
attacks. For March 30 is also the founding day of NSG," he
told reporters here.

function in the morning and attend the match in the afternoon

sacrifice," he said.

of the semi-final clash at his house later.
