Speaking on the party's performance post the Lok Sabha polls, Aiyar said that the future of the party was written in the party's history of 129 years. "We have a mother who is the party president and her son who is the vice president.
Between the two they have to work out how the baton will be passed," he said. "In the past there has been smooth transition and the older generation retained some of the posts and newer generation which occupied the other posts," he said.
"We can't have a situation developed where everyone who have served the Congress is kicked out and those who have not are brought into very important positions," he said. He said there has to be an "intelligence mix" of both older and newer generation.
At the moment, Congress is in calm frame of mind and because the process of introspection is on that seems to be seen as lack of action, he said.
