Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announced that the Aam Aadmi (AAP) party will oppose the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2022. Kejriwal has promised to bring clean politics in the state, which has 403 assemblies. “Some people will ask what we will bring to UP. We will bring clean politics. That many parties could not give to the state,” Kejriwal said.

In a video on Twitter, Kejriwal said Uttar Pradesh’s development has been hampered by dirty politics and corrupt leaders there. “Political parties in UP have stabbed people back; state policy lacks honesty of intent,” he added.

“People will ask why we are competing in a state with so many political parties. Many parties ruled Uttar Pradesh, but they only filled their money reserves,” the AAP convener said.

Kejriwal said people in Uttar Pradesh are now asking why they do not have access to clinics of mohalla and free power like people in Delhi. “Why a person living in Kanpur has to come to Delhi for college, why someone has to bring their elderly parents to Delhi for treatment of Gorakhpur,” he further asked.
