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."
