CPI(M) on Thursday ruled out resignation of its MPs despite Congress President Sonia Gandhi stepping down over the controversial issue of holding office of profit.

"Our MPs will not resign," party General Secretary Prakash Karat said shortly after Gandhi announced her decision.

Asked for his reaction on Gandhi's resignation, he said the party will issue a statement later.

Karat, whose party is a crucial supporting ally of the ruling UPA, said the Government will not bring any ordinance on the issue of office of profit and that Parliament would decide the matter.
