Lahore, Apr.3 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has ruled out joining the federal cabinet, saying his party has no intentions of joining the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) led government.

Denying reports of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani asking him to join the cabinet and become a federal minister after the 17th amendment were abolished, Sharif said the PML-N would continue to play the role of a 'responsible' opposition.

The former Prime Minister criticised the government for the rapidly increasing prices of daily commodities and petroleum products, and said the price rise has added to troubles being faced by the people of the country.

"After the 18th amendment bill is passed, the government should start concentrating on providing relief to the common man," The Dawn quoted Sharif, as saying. (ANI)
