Thursday, 9 January 2014 - 6:35pm IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: PTI

Social activist Medha Patkar today said she was yet to take a decision on joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Patkar told PTI that senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav had spoken to her about joining the fledgling party.

"Deliberations are on within the National Alliance of Peoples Movement (NAPM) of which I am a member, about intervention in electoral process by social activists," she said.

A meeting of NAPM will be held in Mumbai on January 12 and later in Wardha on January 23 and 24.

Meanwhile, speaking in Indore, the 59-year-old social activist expressed hope that there would be some clarity by January 15 on whether she would be joining AAP or not.

She appreciated the leadership of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal.

"The credit goes to Kejriwal and his team to provide a platform for strongly addressing people's issues," Medha said.
