Days after he was served a showcause notice for an outburst against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader Jagmeet Singh Brar suggested change in the party leadership, saying that the maximum tenure of AICC president should not be more than 10 years. Sonia, who took over the party reins in 1998, is the longest serving AICC president.

Brar also hit out at top Congress leaders saying the party failed to prepare a Team B and potential state leaders were marginalised while “sycophants” were encouraged.

Former CWC member, Brar, who had created flutter by suggesting Sonia and Rahul take a two-year break from politics and that the vice-president resign owing responsibility for crushing defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, on Monday said he has written to AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmed and sought answers to the questions raised by him.
