CHENNAI: DMK president M Okay Stalin on Friday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, over the federal government's claim that Rafale paperwork were 'stolen' from the defence ministry, asking how he may just give protection to the rustic, when his executive may just not even safeguard defence paperwork.

"My question is how Modi, who cannot even protect documents, can protect the country? That is why a mega alliance has been formed," Stalin said regarding opposition parties aligning against the BJP.

He used to be chatting with journalists at the birthday celebration headquarters right here, after assembly leaders of a number of small parties that offered reinforce to the DMK-led alliance within the imminent Lok Sabha elections.

On the DMDK's confrontation with DMK treasurer Duraimurugan and its complaint of his birthday celebration, Stalin said he didn't wish to waste time over such trivial issues via responding to them and in addition suggested media to not waste his time via asking questions about DMDK.

He said a Congress workforce can be assembly the DMK seat sharing committee on Saturday to spot the 9 constituencies allocated to the birthday celebration in Tamil Nadu.

"Following Congress, different parties can be completing the id of constituencies within 3 days.

"After this DMK will unlock the list of our candidates for the 20 constituencies wherein we're contesting," said Stalin.

Stalin said, the birthday celebration will even unlock the list of candidates for the 21 assembly constituencies for which byelections are due. "It is a couple of yr since 18 constituencies are vacant and the Election Commission must announce byelections, in conjunction with Lok Sabha elections, in these constituencies too if democracy is to be successful," said Stalin.

He said the DMK has already started its marketing campaign for the Lok Sabha elections.
