Common Man party focus of India vote

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi is facing his closest contest since coming to power last year - in local elections in the capital, Delhi.

The anti-corruption Common Man party (Aam Admi) of former tax inspector Arvind Kejriwal is in the lead and could win, early exit polls suggest.

It is the first major test of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP since its landslide victory in nationwide elections last year.
