JAMMU: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has stressed on honing the talent of youth of the State and addressing their issues through more interactions and engagements.

Addressing a function after launching the local station of a prominent FM radio network here today, the Chief  Minister said the youth of the State possess ample talent but the only problem is of its display and marketing.
