Sol Dodum has become an overnight sensation in Arunachal for his mammoth effort of highlighting what he terms a people’s cause through non-violent means.

After repeated complaints by him to the PHE department and the district deputy commissioner allegedly fell on deaf ears, Dodum decided to walk to Itanagar to make his voice heard.

He submitted an 8-point memorandum to state Home Minister Bamang Felix voicing his demands for clean drinking water, good roads, and other issues.
