Speaking to his supporters at a roadshow in Firozabad and Agra, Kejriwal said that his party will strive to eradicate corruption and inflation.

"This in an opportunity to eradicate corruption and inflation and only Aam Aadmi Party can do this. So ensure that you vote for broom this time," said Kejriwal.

Continuing to drag Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani's name in the political slugfest, Kejriwal claimed that the country is run by him (Ambani) and not by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi or BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

"The country is not being run by Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi, but by Mukesh Ambani," Kejriwal said.

Lauding his 48 days government's performance in Delhi, he said, "Our government did things that no government could do in the country for the past 65 years. We subsidized electricity bill and gave free water and we just spent over Rs 200 and 40 crore respectively, he said, adding this is much less than Rs 54,000 crore the government will lose by favouring Reliance.”

The AAP government had ordered an FIR to be registered against Ambani and Union petroleum minister Veerappa Moily for the alleged irregularities in the KG gas basin issue.

As he started his road show from Kanpur and progressed towards Auriya and Itawa, he received lukewarm response, but it swelled as he reached Firozabad and Agra. In Agra, he also visited a gurudwara. At Guru ka Tal Gurudwara in Agra, the Aam Aadmi Party chief was presented a 'saropa' (dress of honour) and a sword by Head Granthi Baba Pritam Singh.

Addressing a crowd in front of the Gurudwara, Kejriwal said the people of the country "have been crippled by rising prices of essential commodities and corruption".

He said his party would free the people from these two debilitating factors.

AAP is determined to fight against corruption and will work for the welfare of the common man, the former Delhi chief minister said. Meanwhile, targeting Ambani at a rally in Mathura, Kejriwal claimed that gas from K G basin is being sold at an overrated price, a charge that the company has been denying.

"The gas is being sold at 4 US dollars, which is already an inflated price and from April 1 it will be sold for 8 dollars. This will lead to high inflation in the country," Kejriwal said.

Refuting the allegations, Reliance Industries had said, "We deny these irresponsible allegations and propose to resort to the available legal remedies to protect our reputation and preserve the pioneering efforts and investment made by Reliance so far."

Urging people to vote for AAP, Kejriwal asked them to remain careful of the "manipulation" of Congress, BJP and Samajwadi Party.

AAP leader and party's UP in-charge Sanjay Singh lashed out at BJP for using Ram Mandir issue for their political gains.
