Activist Sol Dodum’s protest for the supply of clean drinking water in Seppa town is finally bearing results as in a big move, the Arunachal Government has assured clean drinking water for residents of Seppa in East Kameng within a month.
The development was confirmed by Water Resources minister Mama Natung. Speaking exclusively to Northeast Live, Natung revealed that Chief Minister Pema Khandu had personally asked him to look into the matter following which he visited Seppa along with PHE chief engineers, officers, MLA, and other stakeholders for a ground check.
He asserted that there were no loopholes in the work which is being done by the department and a committee has been formed to ensure the pipe-lining of the water tank is done at the earliest.
The minister further added that a meeting with the local MLA and Sol Dodum will also be held later in the evening, after which a public statement would be made.
Mama Natung also affirmed that there was no corruption in the PHE department as the sole reason why clean water was not supplied is that the tank had become dirty due to growing population and pollution.
He further added that it was not advisable to make allegations without knowing the ground reality.
It is also to be mentioned that, this development came at a time when Sol Dodum is slated to hold another round of talks with Home Minister Bamang Felix on Monday.
It may be mentioned here that Dodum had earlier met the Home Minister on Saturday, wherein the former decided to continue with the protest, despite appeals by HM Felix to call off the protest.
