What does the law say –
Under Article 105(2) of the Constitution, an MP is not liable to any court in India for any behavior done in Parliament. If you understand in common language, then the MPs cannot be challenged in the court for anything done in the house. MPs may not have enough freedom that they can speak anything in Parliament. Whatever the MPs do in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha is decided according to the rule book. If this is not done, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha can take action.
Action is taken against MPs of opposition parties for creating ruckus in Parliament. Usually this action is taken only against the opposition MPs because they oppose the policy of the government. If MPs make inappropriate remarks or do any unparliamentary work during the protest, then action can be taken against them.
What does the rule book of the house say
Both the houses of the Parliament are run according to one rule book. Under Rule 373 of this book, if the Speaker of the Lok Sabha feels that an MP is obstructing the proceedings of the House, then he can throw him out of the House. Action can be taken against him to suspend him for a day to a week and even for the entire session. If the attitude of the MPs is more obstinate, then action is taken against them under Rule 374 and 374A.
