Can’t any action be taken against Bidhuri? Let’s understand

kungumapriya
It is not that no action can be taken against Bidhuri. MPs can be punished or even reprimanded for their

behavior in the House. For such conduct the mp can be suspended, expelled or even sent to jail.

Under Rule 374 of Conduct of business in the lok sabha, the Speaker of the lok sabha can propose to

suspend the mp by moving a motion on such behaviour. The house votes on this proposal. The suspension can

be for the remaining session, but Bidhuri has given these comments during the special session, hence this rule

cannot apply to him. MPs have privileges in parliament, hence a Committee of Privileges has been arranged

in the House. Under Rule 227, the Speaker of the house can send a Privilege Committee to investigate the

misuse of privilege. In this way, now this matter completely depends on lok sabha Speaker om birla as to

what action he takes in this matter.

What kind of action can be taken?

Although there is no specific provision for punishment in such cases in the rules of the lok sabha, but

according to Rule 314, the committee can do as it deems appropriate. Maximum jail sentence can also be

given in this case. Speaking to the BBC, Chakshu Roy, head of research at PRS Legislative Research and an

expert on the rules and procedures of parliament, said, Whenever any action is scheduled against a member,

the Speaker does not usually act unilaterally and the house is informed about the decision. Asks to take.

According to Chakshu Rai, parliament and state legislatures have the power to send someone to jail for breach

of privilege. In rare cases, state legislatures have sent people to imprisonment.
