BJP expels Champion for 6 years over pistol dance video


New Delhi, July 17: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday expelled Uttarakhand MLA Pranav Singh Champion from the party for six years, days after he was seen dancing with two pistols and a carbine in a video, which went viral on the social media.

BJP General Secretary Arun Singh said the indiscipline of the Khanpur MLA was being taken seriously. "Taking into account the indiscipline of the MLA, the BJP is suspending him from the party's primary membership for six years. The decision is being implemented immediately," he said in a letter in Hindi.

Last week, three arms licences of Champion were suspended.
