MLA Pranav Singh ‘Champion’ expelled from BJP after gun trotting video goes viral

Pranav Singh 'Champion' had been suspended for 3 months by the BJP in June after his alleged misbehaviour with a journalist.

BJP MLA Pranav Singh ‘Champion’ from Uttarakhand has been expelled from the party. The MLA was recently seen brandishing guns and dancing to a popular Bollywood song in a video clip that had gone viral. The MLA was already under suspension for 3 months since last month.

The video of him brandishing guns and dancing to Bollywood songs shirtless had gone viral a couple of days ago, causing major embarrassment for the party. The Uttarakhand state unit had also earlier requested the central leadership to grant him a permanent suspension.

Pranav Singh ‘Champion’ is a BJP MLA from Khanpur. He had resigned from Congress in 2016 where he was a cabinet minister in the then Congress government in Uttarakhand led by Harish Rawat. Singh had won the subsequent assembly elections from Khanpur seat in a BJP ticket.

It is not the first time that the MLA’s dancing videos are going viral on social media. His actions and theatrics have always been controversial. In 2015, another dancing video of the MLA had gone viral where Pranav Singh was seen dancing shirtless with guns in his hand. In 2016, another video had surfaced where he was seen enjoying the dance of a bar dancer inside his party office.

Last month, the MLA was suspended for three months as a punishment after he purportedly misbehaved with a journalist. It was reported that Singh was asking for the BJP MP ticket for his wife from the Haridwar Lok Sabha seat.

Yesterday, Pranav Singh Champion had also requested for security cover from Dehradun police alleging threat to him and his family even as the state unit recommended permanent suspension for him.
