On our FactCheck analysis, we found that the video is a clip from the program named Shikhar Sammelan aired on ABP News. Above all, this is an old video uploaded on YouTube on August 12, 2021. Although, in the interview, he expressed his unhappiness towards his Nephew Akhilesh he never made any statement regarding joining the BJP. However, He did say that if given respect, he can join Samajwadi Party again.

Moreover, we found a tweet of 19 an, 2021 on the official handle of Shivpal Singh Yadav. In the post, he squashed the rumors spread about him. He stated,” there is no truth in Laxmikant’s claim that I can join Bharatiya Janata Party, this claim is completely untrue and baseless. I am with the Samajwadi Party alliance led by Akhilesh Yadav and call on my supporters to overthrow the BJP government of the state. Also, I appeal to the supporters to ensure the Samajwadi Party forms the  government in the Uttar Pradesh.”
