The AAP would contest the civic polls in Ghaziabad, Meerut, Lucknow, Varanasi, Kanpur, Agra, Bareilly, Gorakhpur, Allahabad and Aligarh, Sanjay Singh, who was the party's in-charge of Punjab and who is now working to strengthen its organisational base in Uttar Pradesh, told PTI.
It is expected that the dates of the civic polls in these cities will be announced by the month-end and polling will take place next month.
"We will contest from wherever we feel we have a strong organisational base," Mr Singh said.
The party had also received a setback in the state when its leaders, Kumar Vishwas and Arvind Kejriwal, lost to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Amethi and Varanasi respectively in the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
After its poor show in the Punjab polls, the AAP has again shifted focus to Uttar Pradesh, which has 80 Lok Sabha seats.
