Mathura: Senior Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav on Thursday denied that he was joining BJP, a day after his meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath triggered speculations that he might go with the saffron party.
"It was a courtesy call with the Chief Minister and it should not be taken otherwise," he told reporters in Krishna Gopal Peeth, Vrindavan.
Shivpal also said that he was not floating any other party as he was a "true soldier" of the Samajwadi Party.
"I would act as per the wishes of party patron and former UP chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav," he said.
He also went to the extent of saying "Jo apne baap kaa nahi ho saka, woh aapka kya hogaa (how can a person who is not loyal to his father, be loyal to you)."
The SP patron also mentioned that Prime Minister Narendra Modi during one of his election rallies in Kannauj had also echoed the same sentiment.
