BJP Extends Suspension of Uttarakhand MLA for Indefinite Period After Video of Him Dancing With Guns Goes Viral
Dehradun: The BJP Thursday extended the suspension of its Uttrakhand MLA Pranav Singh Champion for an indefinite period, a day after a video showing him dancing with guns went viral on social media, causing embarrassment to the party.
Champion's three-month suspension has now been extended for an indefinite period, Uttarakhand BJP media incharge Devendra Bhasin said in a tweet.
A notice extending the period of suspension had been issued by state BJP general secretary Anil Goyal on the directions of party president Ajay Bhatt, he said.
He was in the news a couple of months ago for publicly indulging in a war of words with Jhabreda BJP MLA Deshraj Karnawal and challenging him to a wrestling bout.
Another video had gone viral last month, in which he was seen threatening a journalist.
