cho quoted....

Cho pointed out that Alladi Krishnaswamy Iyer, while replying to the debate in the Constituent Assembly on this Article, gave the assurance that "it was only a temporary provision and that necessary laws will be made to specify the privileges. Till now, it has not been done. The Parliament and the state legislatures perhaps fight shy of codifying the privileges because once it is done, the judiciary would be the ultimate forum to decide whether there has been breach of privilege or not. This is exactly why there has been a consistent demand for codification."
