Hope is set
In some reports quoting NDRF commander PK Tiwari, some people are still alive inside the tunnel. Tiwari said that we are still not disappointed on the basis of our experience. We feel that there is still oxygen in the tunnel and such gaps in which people can stay alive. More than 100 of our scientists are constantly looking for ways and these are being implemented immediately.
News of relief in difficulties
It is a great relief. There is no danger from the lake formed due to the breaking of the glacier. Navneet Bhullar, Commandant of SDRF, visited the lake in Rishiganga at an altitude of 14 thousand feet. This lake is formed by the breaking of the glacier after the disaster. With the arrival of aerial view and satellite images, it was feared that there would be sudden water flow from the lake and there would be flood-like situations again. Navneet has released and released a video from near the lake. He said that sufficient amount of water is being discharged from the lake, so there is no danger now.
