Should legislators enjoy immunity from prosecution for accepting bribe for votes?

The Supreme Court on Wednesday referred to a seven-judge bench to reconsider its 1998 judgement in the P V Narasimha Rao case, infamously known as 1993 JMM bribery case, granting immunity to MPs/MLAs from prosecution even if they accepted bribery and voted inside the House or asked a question in a particular manner.

The court had said the matter was of "substantial public importance" and involved the "issue of wide ramifications".

Watch this exclusive interview of Supreme Court Advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, who had filed the plea in Supreme Court for having a relook at the 1998 Narasimha judgement.
