Kejriwal on Thursday, resumed his tour of Gujarat and described his brief detention on Wednesday as harassment on the orders of Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Late on Wednesday night, the Aam Aadmi Party leader apologized for the role of his party members in street battles in Lucknow and Delhi, but said the police were constantly reporting his movements to "someone" on the phone, reported NDTV.
"When I visited a hospital in Sami, someone from my team told me that the police officers with me were reporting my movements to someone over the phone," Mr Kejriwal told the media. "I then got a call from a journalist saying I would be stopped in the next town and not be allowed to go on."
Kejriwal was accused by police of violating the model code of conduct, which kicked in on Wednesday after national election was announced, and makes prior police permission necessary for rallies. Officials later said that they accepted that Kejriwal had not broken any election rules because his convoy consisted largely of media cars and did not amount to a political procession.
Kejriwal is on a five-day tour of Gujarat to audit Narendra Modi's claims of exceptional development in the state that he has governed since 2001.
AAP has suggested that if Mr Modi decides to run for Parliament from anywhere outside Gujarat, it will field Mr Kejriwal against him.
