Aam Aadmi Party to contest UP Assembly elections in 2022: Arvind Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announced that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will contest the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls in 2022.

Kejriwal, who is AAP's national convener, slammed the political parties in Uttar Pradesh, accusing them of stabbing the people in the back.

Questioning why people from UP should have to look at Delhi for health services and education, he said Mohalla clinics, free electricity, water, good education and health facilities can also be provided in the state.

Kejriwal said UP has been held back from progress and development because of "dirty politics" and "corrupt" politicians in the state.

He asserted that the AAP would instil honest intentions, and prove that governance is not restricted by resources.
