Description

Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday challenged Narendra Modi to a face-to-face debate on the latter's claims regarding development in Gujarat, while announcing that he would contest against the BJP's prime ministerial candidate from the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency. Keeping the pressure on Mr. Modi, the Congress raised the stakes in Vadodara in Gujarat — the second constituency from where the BJP leader is contesting — by fielding party general secretary Madhusudhan Mistry, a close aide of party vice-president Rahul Gandhi. The party replaced Narendra Ravat, who had earlier been named as the candidate from Vadodara.
