Rather parliamentary privilege should be abolished by making proceedings of the House accountable to normal law of the land. It becomes even more necessary when documents relating to scams like 2G, otherwise accessible under RTI Act, are denied under parliamentary privilege only because matter goes before parliamentary committees.
Is it not an indirect strategy to stop further revealing of scams by setting parliamentary committees on corrupt deeds? It is to be remembered that Supreme Court acquitted parliamentarians involved in infamous JMM bribery case only because their act of voting by being bribed was considered immunised under parliamentary privilege.
