Bhubaneswar: Erstwhile UPA Government’s former Union Minister Srikant Jena today declared that he supports Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as it is not a political party but a movement.

Jena has recently been expelled from Congress for his allegedly anti-party activities and was seen sharing the dais with AAP chief-cum-Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at a social justice meeting here today.

Soon after the meeting, the beleaguered Congress leader in his media reactions said, “Aam Aadmi Party isn’t a party, a movement, that I have been doing since long. As he (Arvind Kejriwal) is also of the same path, today I publicly declared that I’m supporting the movement.”

Clarifying his stand, the senior politician said, “There is no big difference between joining the party and supporting his movement. In this regard, I will move around every rural area and tell the people everything. This movement needs to be taken closer to the general mass.”

He further stated, “Those who will support this social justice campaign, I’ll definitely support them.”

“I have made it clear that I’m now independent. I’m doing my job. I’ve already made it clear earlier if I would fight election or not.”
