    New Delhi, July 20: A privilege motion is a notice by any Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha MP, against anyone who is accused of breach of privilege.

    What is a privilege motion?

    Parliamentary privileges are certain rights and immunities enjoyed by MPs, MLAs and MLCs, individually and collectively, so that they can effectively discharge their functions.

    When any of these rights and immunities are disregarded, the offence is called a 'breach of privilege' and is punishable under Parliamentary rules.

    The House has the power to summon the offending person, warn him/her, or let go free or punish the person.

    And the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to move privilege motion against Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha over his 'false allegations' levelled during his speech over No Confidence Motion.
