NEW DELHI: In a controversial tweet, former Delhi minister and Congress working president Haroon Yusuf on Thursday traded barbs at the Prime Minister alleging that he could trace three kg beef but not 350kg of RDX.
Taking a jibe at PM Modi, Yusuf tweeted, “Narendra Modi ji can trace three kg of beef but cannot trace 350 kg of RDX.”

The tweet was a reference to the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed as well as the rampant cases of cow vigilantism in the country.

According to a leading news agency report, Yusuf later defended his tweet and added, “What I have said is the 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.”
In Thursday’s deadly terror attack, the Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber managed to get hold of the RDX and access to the highway that had been sanitised hours before for the CRPF convoy.
