BJP Expels Uttarakhand MLA Pranav Singh (Revolver)Champion

[New Delhi]BJP Expels Uttarakhand MLA Pranav Singh (Revolver)Champion
The BJP on Wednesday expelled its Uttarakhand MLA Pranav Singh Champion from the party for six years
This action is taken after a purported video of the legislator brandishing guns and dancing at a house party became viral on social media.
Uttarakhand BJP chief Ajay Bhatt had last week served a show-cause notice on Championm, who was already suspended from the party, asking why he should not be expelled from the party.
Champion was suspended from the BJP last month for three months. He was accused of threatening a journalist at Uttarakhand Niwas in New Delhi.
BJP’s media in-charge and Rajya Sabha member Anil Baluni told reporters that the party has taken cognizance of his serial public misconduct and expelled him for six years.
The MLA is no stranger to controversies. He was also in the news a couple of months ago for publicly indulging in a war of words with BJP MLA from Jhabreda constituency Deshraj Karnawal and challenging him to a wrestling bout.
Champion was among the Congress MLAs who had rebelled against Harish Rawat and crossed over to the BJP in 2016.
