NEW DELHI- Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, was attacked today during his roadshow in south Delhi's Dakshinpuri area.

When Kejriwal was shaking hands with his supporters, the person punched Kejriwal on his back and even tried to slap him. The former Delhi chief minister blamed BJP for the assault. "Some people are ready to go to any extent to become Prime Minister. Let them do whatever they are doing. Our religion teaches us non-violence. If we raise our hands, this movement will come to an end," Kejriwal said. He appealed the supporters to remain calm and urged them not to react to the attack. "Let them attack us, we will not retaliate. Some people will do anything to become PM," Kejriwal said after the attack. AAP workers thrashed the attacker and handed him over to the police. The identity of the assailant is not yet known.
