JK HAS ENOUGH TALENT: MOILY
Srinagar, May 25: Jammu and Kashmir had enough talent to be at par with any state of the country in terms of development but there should be a passion among the youth to move towards positive direction, Union Minister for Corporate Affairs Veerappa Moily today said.

Identifying agriculture, horticulture, IT, food processing and cultivation of cash crops as core area for launch of industries in the state, Moily said MSME sector offers all the more promises for the growth and development of state’s economy.
“This is the sector which can provide large-scale self employment to the youth of Jammu and Kashmir which constitutes about 70 per cent of the population in the State,” he said.
