  1. How PM knows any more survive? Her agency had never used any detecting technology nor any sniffer dogs. Neither she wants any foreign help to rescue, instead govt. agency used unskilled, untrained but self-inspired volunteers, at the cost of their lives or limbs. She does not have any Urban Search & Rescue trained personnel or technology, only had a false vanity to decline any help from UN or UK. Now cost is countless!
