The head of a recently-formed Indian anti-corruption party said he is ready to challenge Narendra Modi, the widely-considered favorite to become India's next prime minister, during a speech in the revered Indian city Varanasi.

Arvind Kejriwal, the head of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), also invited Modi, a leading member of the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to an open debate in the Varanasi constituency.

The AAP quickly rose to attention with their anti-corruption campaigns after they formed a minority government in the Delhi assembly following their first contested elections in December 2013; and with their high-profile list of supporters and representatives.
