A military intelligence man who participated in the 1971 Bangladesh war, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu had worked his way up as a local politician helping set up schools and organising drinking water supplies in far-flung areas of the mountainous State.- Why he was not popular with medias ?
Because he did not have any sensation to India in India media is looking for those who gave them sensation like Rakhi Sawant and Poonam Pandey they are least bothered about those who quietly work for social welfare basically hindi media is full of sensational news there are no values for journalism in hindi media

He might be a rare species of politicians! Poor fellow didn't get much attention & it looks like search operations too were not as serious as for Rajshekhar Reddy, ex CM of Andhra who too met the same unfortunate fate.
