DAPORIJO, 19 Apr: The Upper Subansiri Law Students’ Union organized an awareness programme on drug de-addiction here on Saturday.

During the programme, which was attended by schoolchildren, presentations on drug de-addiction were made.

Attending the programme, ADC Taga Ekke appealed to the public to be “alert over the effects of increasing drug menace in the society, especially among teenagers, who are most vulnerable to drug addiction.”

He appealed to parents and guardians to keep vigilance on the movement of their wards. “Special care needs to be taken of the children; else the children will fall prey to drug addiction,” he said.

The ADC sought cooperation from the public to fight the drug menace in the district.
