Dehradun: MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion who was seen dancing to Bollywood music and brandishing guns in a viral video was expelled on Wednesday for six years by BJP. Champion who was under suspension from his party for indiscipline was caught on camera dancing to Bollywood item songs while holding guns in both his hands and one in his mouth. The video of the incident took the internet by storm after it went viral on social media.

State BJP Chief Shyam Jaju had recommended the central BJP leadership to oust Champion from the party. The BJP legislator was also heard using foul and abusive language in the video while dancing on the song from the famous Bollywood movie 'Karan Arjun.' His supporters were also seen supporting him in the act. Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion, however, had termed the entire episode as a conspiracy. "This is a conspiracy. They are licensed weapons and not loaded. I have been targeted by the press and they are putting false allegations," he had stated. "I'm not pointing towards anyone or threatening anyone. What is my crime? Is drinking alcohol and keeping a licensed gun a crime?" he had argued.

Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion landed in some major trouble when a certain video clip that shows him dancing away with guns in his hands went viral online. In the alleged video that has been making the rounds, the MLA who is from Khanpur can be seen grooving 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.
