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
players.



"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.
He said Manmohan Singh was scheduled to attend an NSG
function in the morning and attend the match in the afternoon
that day.



Prime Minister had invited Pakistani to watch the match.



"We have centrally held Pakistan guilty of the Mumbai
attacks. It won`t be proper for him to share the dais with
Pakistani leaders which is a betrayal of NSG jawans`
sacrifice," he said.
He suggested that the Prime Minister may host the winner
of the semi-final clash at his house later.
