He said that an endoscopy-type camera will be used to watch the scenes live where the workers are. Since last Sunday, only dry fruits, medicines and oxygen are being sent through a four inch tube. The victims claimed that they were able to hear what they were saying because a pipe was sent 53 meters deep to the other side of the ruins. Drones and robots have been brought from DRDO for other purposes. Another 36 tons of equipment was brought in by Air Force aircraft.
A man named Hemant, who cooks for the trapped workers, said that they sent hot food for the first time after 9 days. They said that they are preparing only recommended food.
Colonel Deepak Patil, the in-charge of the rescue operation, revealed that food, mobiles and chargers were sent in through an alternative route. He explained that food was prepared for their health with the advice and instructions of the doctors and bananas, apples, kichidi and dalia were sent in cylindrical plastic bottles.
Anshu Manish Khulko, director of National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation, said that there was an atmosphere of happiness among the trapped laborers after learning about this progress. The NHIDCL Director said that the rescue personnel will now go full force to bring out the workers. “There was doubt as to what would happen if the first lifeline was closed… but now we have set up an alternative lifeline… now we will go full force,” Khulko said.
