Popover scope does not work with abstract controller

I have used abstract controller for ionic app and used slide menu which has 2 slides and both of them have separate controllers. I was using old build of ionic and popovers on both of the slides was working just fine honoring scope of particular slide.

Now after upgrade to latest version popovers display and show click happening but never call ng-click method, I tried adding same method to abstract controller and made sure it calls that method instead of the current slide’s scope. I have verified initialization of popover and it sets scope : $scope.

Is there any workaround or I’ll have to define all methods to abstract class?
