VADODARA: In the wake of Uri terror attack, GPCC president Bharat Solanki today blamed the PDP-BJP led  coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir for the rise in  "Pak-sponsored" terror attacks in that state.            

The situation in Jammu and Kashmir would not have  worsened if Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was the Prime  Minister of the country, he said.     

Talking to PTI, the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee  (GPCC) chief also blamed the PDP-BJP led coalition government  in J&K responsible for the rise in the Pak-sponsored terror  attacks in that state.   

Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of trying to divide  people on the basis of caste and religion, the Congress leader  asked, "Why is PM Modi keeping silent despite the killing of  18 jawans in Uri yesterday?"             

Solanki said that late PM Indira Gandhi had displayed  "great courage" and got Bangladesh separated from Pakistan in  1971 war.    

"Our country needs leaders like late Mrs Gandhi," he said  while condemning the Uri attack.           

Solanki was in the city to felicitate newly-elected  office-bearers of the Maharaja Sayajirao University Students'  Union. ABVP candidates were defeated in the election and  NSUI-backed candidates captured the two important posts of  Vice President and General Secretary.             

Talking about this election, he said, "This election  indicates that young generation is turning towards Congress  and also shows good prospects for the party in winning the  upcoming assembly polls in Gujarat.
