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.

Dodum who is accusing the local PHE and DC or corruption, has high hopes that Chief Minister Pema Khandu will address his concerns.

Despite the alleged life threats back in his home town Seppa, Dodum is determined to fight until his demand is met.
