Dibyendu Adhikari has not revealed whether he would join Bharatiya Janata Party or remain in the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC).On March 20, BJP leader Mansukh Mandaviya visited Adhikari's residence to invite Veteran Trinamool Congress MP Sisir Adhikari, the father of Suvendu Adhikari, and TMC MP Dibyendu Adhikari for the rally of Amit Shah at the Egra rally and Narendra Modi rally at Kanthi. Dibyendu told reporters, "We have spoken to the BJP leadership. We will take the final decision about whether to attend or not tomorrow morning." On March 24, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public rally at Kanthi, a district of Purba Midnapore, and both Suvendu and his father, Sisir were present on occasion.

On March 21, Sisir joined BJP at a rally in Egra, West Bengal, in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. After joining BJP, Sisir told PTI, "They (TMC leaders) forced me to join the BJP. Let them (TMC) do what they want, and I will do what I can.''

When asked if Dibyendu would also join BJP, Sisir told the Hindu Business Line, "Why do you want to know about Dibyendu? I said I have joined BJP." Business Line reported that Sisir joined BJP "to fight to save his dignity and the dignity of Midnapore." He and his family members were abused by the former party (Trinamool).

Sisir's son Suvendu is contesting from Nandigram Assembly seat against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Suvendu joined BJP in December 2020. The West Bengal assembly elections would be held between March 27 and April 29. It is an eight-phase election for 294 seats.

Dibyendu representing the Tamluk Lok Sabha constituency has not expressed any views about joining BJP. There are speculations that he may join BJP, and there are no reports to verify it. Hence the claim is unverifiable.
