LUCKNOW: Emboldened by its landslide victory in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party's Uttar Pradesh unit today said it would pose a challenge to the ruling Samajwadi Party in the 2017 assembly elections in the state.

"The results of Delhi assembly elections are an indication of the people's dislike for caste and divisive politics. It has given political alternative and AAP will contest the 2017 elections in UP," AAP spokesman Vaibhav Maheshwari told reporters.

"The landlide victory is also a warning to the SP as AAP will be challenging it in the assembly polls. Our organisation is everywhere in the state and our workers will do issue based politics," he said.

The party workers also distributed sweets to celebrate the victory of the party in Delhi, where it won 67 of the 70 seats. BJP managed to win only three seats.
