Addressing a rally here, the Congress President said the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) had curbed terrorism by 2012 but it resurfaced after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power in 2014.
"See the figures of 2012-13; not a single soldier was martyred. When the BJP government departed in 2004 then there was terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. The Congress united people and curbed terrorism by 2012. But, the BJP came to power in 2014 and people start getting killed," Rahul said.
The Gandhi scion also launched attack on Prime Minister Modi over the bank frauds.
He also asked Prime Minister Modi to solve Mahadayi River water dispute.
"In the Mahadayi issue, I request PM Modi to invite the Chief Ministers of all the three states for a meeting to discuss and arrive at a solution. It's a drinking water problem, so PM Modi must stop making excuses and solve the issue," the Congress President said.
The Mahadayi river is essentially a rain-fed river shared between Karnataka and Goa. About 76 km of Mahadayi's 111-km length runs through Goa and the rest is in Karnataka. It passes through Maharashtra briefly before emptying into the Arabian Sea.
The dispute over sharing of Mahadayi waters began in the 1980s.
