23 leaders wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi
It is noteworthy that in the last August, 23 Congress leaders including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma and Kapil Sibal had written a letter to Sonia Gandhi demanding to be the active president of the party and make a comprehensive organizational change. Many Congress leaders took this as a challenge to the party leadership and especially the Gandhi family. Many leaders also demanded action against Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Even after the dismal performance of the Congress in Bihar assembly elections and by-elections in some states, Azad and Sibal had openly criticized the party’s style of functioning and demanded a comprehensive change in it. After this, he again came under target of many Congress leaders.
