Though Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has protested against the Union Health Ministry’s failure to invite him for the function to the lay the foundation for the PGI satellite centre at Sangrur, the veteran leader seems to be getting a taste of his own medicine.

Congress MPs and MLAs have been protesting against the government for ignoring them at official functions in their respective constituencies.

Gidderbaha MLA Amarinder Singh Raja Warring staged a protest recently when Mr. Badal ignored him at a Sangat Darshan programme to give away grants to villages.

Even the cricketer-turned-politician, Navjot Singh Sidhu, has been upset that he is not invited to official functions in Amritsar, which he represents in the Lok Sabha for the BJP, an ally of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal.
