The BJP on July 17 expelled its Uttarakhand MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion from the party for six years, days after a purported video of the legislator brandishing guns and dancing at a house party became viral on social media. Party media head and Rajya Sabha member Anil Baluni told presspersons that the party had taken cognisance of his serial public misconduct.

Mr. Champion was first sent a show-cause notice by the State unit before the expulsion orders were issued. 

He was already suspended from the party for earlier instances of alleged misdemeanour.
