A day after senior Punjab Congress leader Jagmeet Singh Brar asked Congress president Sonia Gandhi and second in command Rahul to step aside for two years in the wake of the crushing election defeat, the party on Saturday issued a showcause notice to him asking him to explain his conduct within three days.

Even as the party took note of Brar’s remarks, Congress spokesperson Raj Babbar said “arrogance” of the ministers in the UPA government was the foremost reason for the party’s defeat and lowering of its image in the eyes of the public.

Punjab Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa issued the notice to Brar for what he  called “irresponsible and undesirable utterances” after being asked to do so by Haryana AICC in-charge of Shakeel Ahmed. Bajwa said such irresponsible behaviour was not expected from a leader like Brar.
