Congress leader and working president of Delhi Congress Haroon Yusuf has attacked PM Narendra Modi over the intelligence failure in deadly Pulwama attack.

Yusuf has tweeted saying, ‘while Prime Minister Narendra Modi could trace 3 kg beef, but he failed to find 350 kg RDX.’

Yusuf was referring to the terror blast in Pulwama which claimed the lives of more than 40 CRPF soldiers and it is being suspected that the car which suicide bomber was driving was laden with around 30 kg of RDX into a jerrycan, shards of which were collected as evidence by the investigative team.

Yusuf tweeted, “@narendramodi Ji can trace 3 kg of beef but cannot trace 350 kg of RDX #ModiFailsNationalSecurity.”

Terming Yusuf’s statement as “scandalous and irresponsible,” Union Minister Ravishankar Prasad criticized his remarks. Meanwhile, Delhi BJP vice-president Rajiv Babbar has said that its Congress’ “double face.”

Babbar said, “They cannot 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.”

Haroon Yusuf has alleged that “The Pulwama attack shocked the nation and in the meantime, Yusuf has issued a very objectionable statement against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and tried to give it a communal colour.”
