Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal will hold a three-day road show covering 15 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.
“Arvind Kejriwal will be in Uttar Pradesh for Lok Sabha poll campaign from March 1-3 and undertake the Jhadu Chalao Yatra,” said party leader and Political Affairs Committee (PAC) member Sanjay Singh.
The rally will start on March 1 from party office in Kaushambi and proceed to Ghaziabad, Pilkhuwa, Hapur, Amroha, Moradabad, Rampur, Bareilly, Shahjahanpur and Hardoi.
On March two, the road rally will start from Hardoi and proceed to Unnao and reach Kanpur where Kejriwal will address a rally. In Kanpur, he will also meet leaders from business community and social organisations.
On March 3, the road rally will head to Delhi covering Auraiya, Etawah, Firozabad, Agra, Mathura and Palwal.
“This will cover over 15 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh,” Singh added. AAP has over 3.5 lakh of volunteers and members in Uttar Pradesh and has high hopes pinned on the state, especially the area covering the NCR region.
The party has already fielded Kumar Vishwas against Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi in Amethi while there is talk of party leader Shazia Imli contesting against Congress President Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli.
Its candidates are also in fray against RLD leader and Union Minister Ajit Singh, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and Minister of External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.
The party may also field Adarsh Shastri from Luknow, sources said.
Bhushan, like Yadav, said that Kejriwal and “his coterie” had forgotten the principles that the party was built on.
