surahs to be read in salaah

Question ID: 30829

Recently there was a problem in our mosque. A person questioned the Imam and reproached him that the qiraat he read in the Esha prayer was against the Sunnah because it was too short. In fact the Imam read the Surah “At-Tin” (95). That person has the support of some people who are against the Hanafi Mazhab.
My questions are “Is it really a Sunnah for the Imam to have a long qiraat in the Esha prayer” and ” has the imam committed a mistake by reading Surah At-Tin “
Please let me have your views according to the Hanafi Fiqh.
