At least five lawmakers belonging to the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Sunday announced their resignation during a Khatm-i-Nabuwwat conference organised by Pir Sialvi in Faisalabad.

They said they would step down from their positions in the assemblies due to government inaction against Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah who recently came under fire for allegedly speaking in favour of a religious minority.
