In a sharp attack on Aam Aadmi Party, senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid on Wednesday accused it being an"anarchist out to destroy the system" and has got some of the "worst, stinking, third grade people" across the country.

Khurshid, external affairs minister, also claimed AAP is "not in the race" in the Lok Sabha polls and "mistaken" if they think so.

"The are jurassic. They smell of anarchy. They just demean everything that has been time-tested. They ridicule anything. They question and demean anything...AAP is a real threat to our system. They are anarchist. They want to destroy the system. They are anarchist either by choice or by ignorance," Khurshid told NDTV.

His remarks came a day after Arvind Kejriwal-led party claimed over 10 lakh people joined it in the last five days of its on-going nation-wide membership drive.

"AAP has some of the worst, third grade people across the country. I have been to districts where I have found that the worst stinking persons are the first to join AAP...they are lucky today because every stink is described as a fragrance for good for them," Khurshid said.

The Union minister also claimed that in the very short time of 15 days since AAP formed government in Delhi, it has done enough "damage" to a sensible person's perception about them.

Repyling to questions, Khurshid said "AAP is not in the race. Forget about what we are. They are not in the race. They are mistaken. They are running a government in Delhi because of us."

Eight MLAs of Congress are providing crucial outside support to the AAP government in Delhi.

Attacking the AAP chief over his style of functioning, he said, "Kejriwal redefines rules,...moves the goalpost everytime he likes. This is not going to work in a nation like ours. The sooner he gets to discover what he is is what his limits are, the better it will be."
