ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Wednesday categorically said that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) lawmakers would not resign from the assembles.

He said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was taking measures to bring down inflation to provide relief to the common man.
He stressed the need for making economic, electoral and National Accountability Bureau (NAB) reforms to ensure more transparency in their system.
