Uttarakhand BJP is in trouble yet again for its controversial legislator Pranav Singh Champion.
Pranav Singh is at present, suspended from the party on grounds of indiscipline and misbehaviour. He had been charged for threatening a journalist.
And if this want enough, his latest video with guns in his hand, could land him on the wrong side of the fence with BJP yet again.

Pranav Singh Champion is seen in a now-viral video brandishing several guns – numbering to at least four revolvers and a rifle – as he dances to a popular Bollywood item number. He is also seen using abusive and obscene language. Wearing black vest and white trousers, Pranav Singh Champion is also taking a sip of a drink in the video. He is accompanied by 2-3 other men, who are part of the dance celebrations. The venue seems like an indoor drawing room.
When notified, the Police has said that they will look into the matter and also verify if the weapons were licensed or not.
Several other people are also seen dancing in the 1 minute 45 second-video tweeted by news agency Asian News International (ANI).
“We will look into the matter and also verify if the weapons are licensed or not,” a police officer was quoted as saying by ANI.
After this episode and the viral video, The Bharatiya Janata Party said it will take “strict action” against the legislator.
“I have seen that video. I condemn it. These kinds of complaints came against Pranav Singh Champion earlier as well, that’s why he was suspended for three months. We’ll talk to Uttarakhand unit about it. Strict action will be taken,” BJP national media in-charge Anil Baluni said, according to ANI.
The legislator was suspended by the BJP last month for threatening journalists.
