New Delhi, April 9: He has been slapped once again on his face but support is still pouring in for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal. A day after the shocking attack in Delhi, Twitter went abuzz with tweets supporting Kejriwal and his party.

An auto-rickshaw driver Lali slapped Kejriwal during AAP's roadshow in Sultanpuri area of North West Delhi constituency on Tuesday, April 8. It was said that the attacker was a former supporter of the AAP and was unhappy with the AAP for allegedly not delivering on the promises he had made ahead of the Delhi elections and quitting power after 49 days.

Micro-blogging site Twitter received mixed response following the incident in the national capital. While anti-Kejriwal group tweeted, "That #Kejriwal "refuses" security even after the 5th attack - shows he's using these as attention grabbing stunts. #SlappedAgain."

However, many people showed confidence in Kejriwal and showed their support for the leader. #IStangWithArvind has been trending on top since morning on Wednesday. Here are a few tweets supporting Kejriwal:
