Solve Jammu and Kashmir row politically: SC

The judiciary had its limitations in resolving “certain dimensions“ of the ongoing unrest in J&K and it should be done politically , the Supreme Court said on Monday . Finding that the petitioner, National Panthers Party chief Bhim Singh, had not filed his response to the Centre's status report on the J&K situation, a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur adjourned his petition seeking imposition of governor's rule in the state. “You (Singh) must realise that certain dimensions of the problem cannot be addressed judicially . It has to be addressed politically ,“ the bench said.
Singh said, “The situation in the Valley has gone out of control and the administration has not been able to restore law and order. The government is not functioning as per the state constitution.“
Justice Thakur told Singh that political leaders from J&K were meeting the PM to give their views on solving the impasse in the state and advised him to participate in the political discussions.
Singh said the “RSS-dictated central government“ had not invited him for the meeting. The bench snubbed him and said, “Please do not make political speeches inside the court.“ However, it told solicitor general Ranjit Kumar it would be proper for the government to invite Singh to the political discussions on J&K as Singh's credentials were beyond doubt. The SG promised that he would get in touch with the home secretary. The court posted the matter for further hearing on Friday .
