The time has come for the apex court to examine the issue from the constitutional point of view and settle the controversy once and for all, it said and stayed the disciplinary proceedings against Bedade.

I can not understand the meaning of underlined texts in the context of whole

"The time has come for the apex court to examine the issue from the constitutional point of view and settle the controversy once and for all," it said, and stayed the disciplinary proceedings against Bedade.
