BJP national vice-president and Rajya Sabha MP Kalraj Mishra said here today that peace talks with Pakistan during the semifinal cricket match between India and Pakistan in Mohali was an attempt to divert the attention of the general public from national issues. “An unusual hype was created by the Congress,” Mishra said while talking to reporters here today.

Elaborating on the issue, the BJP leader said the Congress had been on a receiving end from the Supreme Court on the issue of black money stashed in foreign banks. “This (holding talks on sidelines of cricket match) was nothing new but an attempt to skirt the real issues,” said Mishra, who is in-charge of Himachal BJP unit.

Responding to a query raised about recent incident of open protest by BJP Member of Parliament Rajan Sushant and MLA Harinaryan Singh in the state, he said that the party has taken review of the protest being lodged by the two and appropriate action would be taken in the matter.

Mishra said that the party would held three protest Rallies against UPA-II to aware the
masses in the state about rampant corruptions during Congress lead government at Centre. He said that party workers would organised ‘Gram Yatra” in each Vidhan Sabha segment of the state to create awareness about corruptions cases like 2G scam, Commonwealth Game and Adharsh Society Scams under the current centre government.
He said that a strategy would be chalked out to organize small meetings in the state by the party to protest “misgovernance” by UPA government in the country.
