Congress leader Haroon Yusuf rakes up beef issue while attacking Modi govt on Pulwama terror attack

He also claimed that lynching was done for polarisation.

A day after Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala attacked the Modi government by holding it responsible for the Pulwama terrorist attack and called the JeM terrorist a “home-grown so-called terrorist”, now the Delhi Congress working president Haroon Yusuf has used the Pulwama terrorist attack to rake up the beef issue. Referring to the RDX which was used by the terrorist to carry out the attack on the CRPF soldiers, Yusuf tauntingly said that the Prime Minister could trace 3 kg of beef but could not trace 350 kg of RDX which was allegedly used in the Pulwama terrorist attack.

Yusuf’s remarks attracted sharp criticism for the BJP as Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad termed Yusuf’s comments as “scandalous and irresponsible”. Delhi BJP Vice-President Rajiv Babbar said that Yusuf’s remarks exposed his party’s double face. “They can not even wait for a few days and have started defaming security agencies. This exposes their double face. They claim solidarity with the government in all-party meeting and soon start seeking political gains through their shameful comments,” said Babbar.

Defending his statement Yusuf said, “What I have said is reality. Can you deny it? Lynching was done for polarisation. You can catch 3 kg beef, kill innocents, but not 350 kg RDX. Isn’t Modi informed by security agencies,”
