<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On the day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi met political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir in an attempt to address issues in the prevailing situation in the state, the Supreme Court on Monday said the issues should be “dealt with politically” and it can’t be managed judicially.The apex court also asked the Solicitor General to help activist lawyer and Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) leader Bhim Singh to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue.”This issue has various dimensions and therefore should be dealt politically and moreover, everything cannot be managed within the judicial parameters,” a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur said.The bench also referred to a meeting today between a delegation of the state’s opposition parties led by former chief minister Omar Abdullah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked Singh to join the delegation.When the senior lawyer said the “RSS-dictated” government would not invite him, the court, which asked Solicitor General (SG) Ranjit Kumar to facilitate Singh’s meeting with Modi, was annoyed.”Don’t make a political statement here. You tell us whether you want to go and meet the political leadership or not,” the bench said.Singh sought imposition of Governor’s Rule in Jammu and Kashmir in the prevailing situation in the valley.The bench said the statements made by Bhim Singh may not be “relevant judicially” but they may be “relevant politically”.Earlier, the Centre, in its status report filed in the court earlier this month had said that the law and order situation in the Valley has improved considerably.The Valley has been witnessing a spate of violent protests following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.According to Centre, a total of 872 incidents of violence were reported mainly from south Kashmir and parts of central and north Kashmir.It was stated that in these incidents, 42 civilians and two security personnel were killed, while 2656 civilians and 3783 security personnel were injured.
