"Get to the masterminds and these attacks will stop," the former chief minister told Police Commissioner BS Bassi.

Kejriwal told the media that he was not upset with the auto-rickshaw driver Lali, who slapped him on Tuesday or the 19-year-old unemployed Muslim man, Abdul Wahid, who punched him last week.

"They are not to blame. Both are from very poor families. They are being exploited," he said.

Kejriwal reiterated that he will not accept the security cover being offered to him by the government.

The Aam Aadmi Party chief earlier in the day reached out to two men, who have attacked him during his campaigns.

Kejriwal called on Lali, an auto-rickshaw driver who slapped him in Sultanpuri in northwest Delhi yesterday.

Kejriwal has faced several attacks in the past few weeks. On March 28, he was attacked by a man, who claimed to be a supporter of Anna Hazare, during his election rally in Haryana.

In Varanasi last week, protesters threw ink on Kejriwal and a number of other party leaders during a roadshow.
