"Upload videos on good works of Delhi government and telling how you benefitted from it on Twitter, Instagram Facebook. Also, WhatsApp people known to you in these states appealing them to give a chance to Kejriwal," he said while launching 'Ek Mauka Kejriwal Ko' campaign.

"People from the United Nations came to see the mohalla clinics run in Delhi. The wife of US President visited schools in Delhi. Delhi is now getting 24-hour electricity. All this was possible because you the people of Delhi gave us a chance," he said.

"50 Delhiites whose videos will go viral will be invited for dinner after polls," the Delhi CM said.

In Uttar Pradesh, the party is contesting party on all 403 seats. In Uttarakhand and Goa as well, the AAP is in the fray. While Colonel (retired) Ajay Kothiyal is AAP's CM candidate in Uttarakhand, it has declared Amit Palekar as its chief ministerial candidate in Goa.

The party has been recklessly promising freebies in Punjab and other states in a desperate attempt to capture power.
