Arvind Kejriwal says he will defeat Narendra Modi from Varanasi seat

Arvind Kejriwal says he will defeat Narendra Modi from Varanasi seat
'I don't see Banaras as a losing battle. I will defeat Modi' in the Lok Sabha election, the former Delhi chief minister told a television channel, shortly after reaching Varanasi by train from New Delhi.

'Fighting against Modi is a small thing,' Kejriwal told NDTV. 'Saving the country from corruption is a big issue now.'

Eggs were thrown at his car outside the Kashi Vishwanath temple, with the protesters steadily raising anti-Kejriwal slogans and asking him to leave the Hindu holy city.

Calling him a 'traitor', hundreds of slogan-shouting people blocked his cavalcade while keeping up a steady chant of 'Modi! Modi!'.

Security personnel had a tough time controlling the crowd. The demonstrators said they wanted only Gujarat chief minister Modi to contest the Lok Sabha battle from Varanasi.
