Dehradun: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday suspended its MLA from Uttarakhand’s Khanpur, Pranav Singh Champion for an indefinite period after a video showing him dancing to Hindi Bollywood songs while brandishing his gun went viral on social media.

Devendra Bhasin, media head of BJP Uttarakhand, said that Champion, who was previously suspended from the party for three months, has been now suspended indefinitely on the directions of state BJP president Ajay Bhatt.

Champion, on Wednesday, landed into a controversy after a video showing him dancing with guns and a drink in hand went viral on social media. In the video, Kunwar Pranav can be seen hurling abuses and dancing while holding three pistols and a rifle. He can also be heard stressing that nobody can do what he is doing in entire India.

Notably, the video went viral just a few days after the BJP MLA was suspended from the party for three months for allegedly threatening a journalist.
