    Vote-for-bribe: SC says no immunity for MPs & MLAs; PM Modi lauds verdict

    The seven-judge SC bench, in its unanimous verdict, said the 1998 ruling was paradoxical as it protected bribe taking MPs who vote in consideration of it but allowed prosecution of those who did not vote. "An MP or MLA cant claim immunity from prosecution on a charge of bribery in connection with the vote/speech in the Parliament/legislative assembly," the bench headed by CJI DY Chandrachud said.
