From Aviation Herald, A320s have reported 6 issues in just last three days. What are some possible reasons for such bugs ,like AI 405 had a hydraulic leak, and B6-907 had a hydraulic failure. Are the airline engineering teams to be blamed for such incidents?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
A statement like "model X has reported Y failures in Z days" is not relevant in aviation. In aviation what is relevant is the mean time between failures [meaning the same type of failure] (in short MTBF): it is the mean time, fleet-wise, between two failures (example, two engine failure concerning the same component). The relevant part, is the "fleet-wise": if there would be only 1 A320 in operation, 2 issues a day would bee too many indeed, with hundreds (thousands?) of A320s in service, flying hundreds of hours each day all over the world, I would say that 2 issues a day is a quite decent record.
