Asif Ghafoor had made the tweet with the hashtag, #CostforCDS, in a reference to the fact that the damage to Indian forces had been due to Indian army chief Bipin Rawat’s desire to become the Chief of Defence Staff in India, and his misadventures in Kashmir were the result of this aim.
Earlier, the ISPR had stated that Rawat seeks to become India’s first CDS with the ‘blood of innocents on his hand’.
