Congress MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion was removed from the post of chairman of the Uttarakhand Forest Development Corporation Wednesday evening. He enjoyed the status of a Cabinet Minister in his capacity as the chairman of UFDC.
Pranav had recently made a statement against CM Vijay Bahuguna and his ministerial colleagues. He had also targeted transport minister Surendra Rakesh, a BSP MLA. The Progressive Democratic Front recently demanded Pranav’s removal. Sources said the government’s decision to remove Pranav from his post came a day before the meeting of the PDF.
