A few days later, Rahul Gandhi's 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' reached Uttar Pradesh. A video of this visit is going viral on social media with the claim that Rashtriya Lok Dal workers had participated in Rahul Gandhi's visit and speculations are being made that Jayant Chaudhary may join the INDI alliance again. But when India TV fact checked this claim, it turned out to be misleading.

In our investigation, we first watched this video carefully. In the video, the flag of Lok Dal in the hands of the workers has Lok Dal written in big letters and the photo of Chaudhary Charan Singh is also printed on it. Sunil Singh's photo is also visible on these flags. Along with this, Lok Dal's election symbol 'farmer ploughing fields' is also visible on the flag.

With so much information, when we searched Google using keywords, news from our website India TV came up. This news was published on 25 February 2024. Its headline reads, "Lok Dal joins Rahul's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Akhilesh will also accompany him in Agra." Going down in the news, it is written, "Today when the Yatra was passing through Aligarh, Lok Dal also joined the Yatra. Lok Dal's national president Sunil Singh along with many of his workers joined the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. This party is a separate party from Jayant Chaudhary's Rashtriya Lok Dal."
