SUSPENDED Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Uttarkhand Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion landed in trouble once again on Wednesday as a video showing him dancing with guns in his hands during a get-together went viral prompting an embarrassed party to issue a show cause notice to him. In the video, the Khanpur MLA is purportedly seen dancing to a popular Bollywood number with two revolvers in his hands and a carbine hanging from his shoulder.
He is seen sipping his drink from a glass as his friends cheer him on. BJP’s national media in-charge Anil Baluni said that the party strongly condemns the MLA’s behaviour and strict action will be taken against him. “A notice has been issued to the MLA seeking an explanation from him for his behaviour within 10 days,” State unit president and Nainital MP Ajay Bhatt told reporters in Haridwar.
“If his explanation is not found satisfactory, he can even be expelled from the party,” Bhatt who was in Haridwar to attend a ceremony said. The BJP had last month suspended Champion from the party for three months on charges of indiscipline. Bhatt said that the words used by the MLA about Uttarakhand in the video clip have caused huge embarrassment to the party.
