Chandigarh: The Punjab Congress leaders on Sunday lodged a strong protest with the party high command against Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, alleging that he didn't invite a single partymen during his visit to the state.

"Despite, AICC instructions to ministers to visit the district congress offices, the minister neither visited any Congress office nor he invited any Congressmen for his visit on Sunday," said the Congressmen.

However, they alleged that he was accompanied by SAD-BJP leaders in his entire visit.

Irked Congressmen, particularly from Border Area has sent a letter to the AICC President against Shinde demanding strong action against him.

It is alarming that instead of talking tough against SAD-BJP, which siphoned the Central Funds and Border area Development Funds, Shinde choose to visit along with such leaders, they alleged in a letter.

visited on Sunday.
