Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with other political leaders, expressed profound relief and admiration for the collective efforts that led to the safe extraction of all individuals involved.
PM Modi Lauds Heroic Rescue Efforts
Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the rescue operation as an “amazing example of humanity and teamwork.” In a heartfelt message, he commended the courage and patience of the trapped workers, expressing his wishes for their well-being and good health. The extraction process, taking approximately an hour, was meticulously conducted to ensure each worker re-acclimatized to surface conditions, with temperatures around 14 degrees Celsius.
President Murmu Expresses Relief
President Droupadi Murmu conveyed her relief and joy at the successful rescue, acknowledging the workers’ endurance over the 17-day period. She described their travails as a testament to human endurance, emphasizing the significance of the collaborative efforts that ultimately led to their freedom.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah lauded the news as “great” for the nation, saluting the grit displayed by the workers during their prolonged ordeal. Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, recognized the well-coordinated effort involving multiple agencies, terming it one of the most significant rescue operations in recent years.
Chief Ministers Yogi Adityanath of Uttar Pradesh and Arvind Kejriwal of Delhi expressed gratitude to the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), the Army, and other agencies involved in the rescue. Yogi Adityanath thanked all contributors for their invaluable efforts, while Arvind Kejriwal saluted the tireless work of those engaged in the operation, working day and night to ensure success.
Innovative Techniques Ensure Success
The rescue operation faced challenges when high-tech machines failed to drill through the collapsed portion of the tunnel. However, the implementation of rat hole mining, a banned technique, proved successful in clearing the last few meters. Personnel from the NDRF played a crucial role, descending into the pipe to assess conditions and guide the workers through rescue protocols. Specially modified stretchers were used to manually pull each worker up through 60 meters of rock and debris.
Conclusion of a Remarkable Rescue Mission
The successful rescue operation in the Silkyara tunnel stands as a remarkable testament to human determination and collaboration. The entire nation celebrates the safe return of the trapped workers, highlighting the extraordinary efforts of all involved in this challenging and heartwarming mission.
