Sonia, Rahul should take break: Congressman - Sakshi Post

New Delhi,  Former Congress Working Committee member Jagmit Singh Brar on Friday created a flutter with his remarks on Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

He said that there was "no harm" if Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi took a two-year break in the wake of the Lok Sabha poll debacle.

Mr Brar, a former lawmaker from Punjab said that all general secretaries of the All India Congress Committe or AICC should have resigned after the drubbing the Congress party faced in the recently held elections. He also said that the party mantle should be handed over to a new set of leaders.

Mr Brar is the first Congress leader, who has demanded the Gandhis to be out of leadership even if it is for a brief period.

However, he also said that whatever he was saying was as a Congressman, who had spent years in the party and he believes that the Gandhis can stage a comeback after a brief respite and in the meantime, some leader can head the party.

He, was, however, unsparing in his criticism of the "advisors" of the leadership saying they did not allow party workers to interact with the leadership and they should immediately quit.

"It's a collective responsibility. I am not saying put the blame on Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi only. Everybody has to take responsibility. They are also responsible. What I am saying is that if a person has remained party President for so many years, there is no harm if he or she takes a cool off period for two years," said Mr Brar
