(2007) 3 SCC 184 another Constitution Bench revisited the conflict The Court held that Fundamental Rights under Articles 20 and 21 could prevail over privileges under Articles 105 and 194 However no mention was made of rights under Article 19 (1) (a) relating to Freedom of Speech Recently a bench of two judges in Algaapuram R Mohanraj v Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly WP (C) 455 of 2015 examined the issue It went into a detailed analysis of the violations of the Right to Speech Right to Expression Right to Life and Right to Equality Though the first three were rejected the contention regarding violation of the Right to Equality was upheld Over the years the claim to unbridled powers enjoyed by the legislatures under Articles 105 and 194 have been considerably tempered While Constitutional courts have tried to stay away from interfering with the internal functioning of Parliament and state legislatures inevitably they tend to get sucked in when the fundamental rights of citizens appear to be egregiously breached The Supreme Court’s jurisprudence in this regard however remains somewhat unclear There seems to be no rationale for the Supreme Court holding that certain fundamental rights override legislative privilege while others are subservient to it Crucially despite the Court showing an increased willingness to test orders passed in favour of legislative privilege the law laid down in the ‘Searchlight’ case still holds the field The scales thus remain tilted in favour of privileges and against the right to speech Without the judiciary to protect them the fights between India’s legislatures and her press have been unequal Despite suggestions that the concept of parliamentary privilege be done away with altogether no such proposals have seriously been considered by Parliament The Press Commission has often taken up the issue of codification of privileges Even the National Commission to Review the Working of the Constitution in its report in 2002 suggested that privileges be “defined and delimited” But legislatures have been reluctant as once privileges are codified they will be subject to judicial scrutiny The power to imprison was once described in England as “the keystone of Parliamentary Privilege” It has not been used in over a hundred years Its use in India a country that prides itself on its Charter of Rights codified in the Constitution is an anomaly But legislatures are unlikely to take steps to do away with privilege or to codify them That’s why it is important for Courts to subject invocation of parliamentary privilege to stricter judicial scrutiny in order to curb potential misuse Sanjay R Hegde is a senior advocate in the Supreme Court and tweets @sanjayuvacha Pranjal Kishore is a lawyer who practices in
