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.
