New Delhi, Mar 19 (PTI) BJP president J P Nadda on Sunday accused Rahul Gandhi of overstepping all bounds of democracy and said he should be sent packing "lock, stock and barrel" in a democratic manner.

"Those who do not believe in democracy have no place in democracy," Nadda said in his virtual address after inaugurating the 'National Youth parliament' of his party's youth wing Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, being held in Chennai. The Congress has become mentally bankrupt, Nadda said while alleging that Gandhi "instigated" foreign powers like the US and European countries to interfere in India's internal affairs by claiming that they were "oblivious" while democracy was under threat in India.

"Rahul Gandhi has crossed all bounds of democracy," he said.
