After controversial 4-day Gujarat campaign, Arvind Kejriwal back in Uttar Pradesh today
Mathura: After a controversial four-day tour in Narendra Modi's bastion of Gujarat, the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP is back in the crucial state of Uttar Pradesh.

Party chief Arvind Kejriwal will hold a rally in the holy town of Mathura in western Uttar Pradesh today.

Last week, AAP organised a 500-km three-day yatra in Uttar Pradesh which started from the party office in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad, covering over 15 Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Uttar Pradesh, with its 80 Lok Sabha seats, is crucial in determining the winner of the nine-phase national elections, beginning April 7.

AAP, which made a stunning debut in last year's Delhi Assembly polls by forming a government in the national capital, plans to now fight in over 300 Lok Sabha seats across the country.

The party, with corruption as its chief poll plank, has recruited a slew of activists and public figures to bolster its prospects in the crucial elections.
