Mumbai/New Delhi: The Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) and its allied groups Monday announced their support for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Maharashtra, activist Medha Patkar said.

In New Delhi, AAP leader Prashant Bhushan said that such movements, which are immensely respected all cross the country, are associating themselves with the party "to improve the country".

Speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Patkar said: "We have endorsed all the policies of AAP, and have extended our full support to the party. Our struggles and campaigns on various issues shall continue jointly."

Contrary to earlier speculation, Patkar did not announce her entry into the AAP, and only extended the NBA and NAPM's "full support" to the Aam Aadmi Party, led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Patkar is also a member of the National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM).

Patkar said that all future people-oriented agitations of the NBA and NAPM will now be carried out jointly with the AAP.
