New Delhi, Aug 22: The Supreme Court on Monday observed that not all issues can be dealt within the parameters of the judiciary and certain issues need to be dealt with politically. These observations were made by the court while hearing a matter seeking imposition of Governor's rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

A petition had been filed by Bhim Singh, the chief of the Panther's Party. In his petition, while pointing out that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir was worsening, he had sought imposition of Governor's rule.

SC responds to petition relating to J&K

When the matter came up for hearing, the Supreme Court directed Singh to go take part in the political process to find a solution to the problem in J&K. "So many leaders are meeting the Prime Minister and raising this issue. You should be there too," the SC told Singh.

Singh, however, said that the government takes orders from the RSS as a result of which he is not allowed to take part in the political process. "Do not make a political speech here," SC then told Singh.

Further the court told the centre to let Singh be part of the talks. The court told the solicitor general to allow Singh to express his views to the government on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The government agreed to the same. The court also pointed out to Singh that some issues need to be dealt with politically. Not all issues can be managed in the parameters of the judiciary, the Supreme Court also said.
