This MLA, however, is no stranger to controversies. Champion was previously suspended from the BJP party for three months on charges of indiscipline in June 2019.
The suspension had followed preliminary investigations by the party into charges of indiscipline against him and that of threatening a journalist at Uttarakhand Niwas in New Delhi.
Just a few months ago, the BJP MLA Champion was all over the news for indulging in a public war of words with another BJP MLA from Jhabreda Deshraj Karnawal. He even went on to challenge him to a wrestling bout!
Champion was among Congress MLAs who had rebelled against former chief minister Harish Rawat and crossed over to the BJP in 2016.
