On the part of Supt. of Police, Jha said that the name and fame of WASE have now crossed the border of Arunachal Pradesh and the whole of the country is now gradually coming to know the real works and sacrifices of WASE mothers.
“As some of the members of team WASE have personally experienced about the harm of drug addictions to their own children, so they have actively contributed in eradicating drug menace without any expectation from anyone”, said Jha. While Taggu said that, WASE mothers’ work has, directly and indirectly, helped the District Administration and Police in the attempt to keep the district free from the growing drug menace.

The song in local Adi dialogue “WASE ane ngoluk kapnam sim dadiye nolu tatgap bilai, WASE ane ngoluk anki sim takame ngolu minggap gelaju, drugs-kani sim imarung peka, bhang-ganja sim imang rung peka, lutum tatma mil imem supelo, luyang tatma mil bursu kupelo” sends meaningful lines in conveying the youths to avoid drugs-opium, bhang-ganja etc. When the song was released and played, many WASE mothers became emotional and their eyes turned moist, as the song deeply touched the activities of team WASE and their tireless efforts.
The team WASE has been in the fight against drugs and other illicit substances menace from several years back. Their good works have already inspired many other organizations in the state today including the organizations from neighboring Assam.
