Dehra Dun: Embarrassing the party, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) on 17 July expelled Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion from the party for allegedly flaunting pistols and guns at a house party after a video of the function went viral on social media.
A PTI report states that BJP media head Anil Baluni confirmed that Champion, a Uttarakhand MLA, had been expelled from the party for 6 years. Baluni, a Rajya Sabha member said, “the party had taken cognisance of his serial misconduct and expelled him.”
The defiant legislator had contested the viral video contents in an interview with ANI, “Whats the crime ? This is a conspiracy. Is drinking alcohol and keeping licensed gun a crime ?”
It was not the first time that the flamboyant Kunwar had not run into trouble with party managers.
Another video, a few months ago, was doing the social media rounds in which Champion was seen allegedly threatening to kill a journalist. In another incident he had got into a verbal duel with another BJP MLA Deshraj Karnawal and had challenged him to a fight out a wrestling bout to settle scores.
