No question of resigning: PM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday ruled out his resignation following Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's outburst on an ordinance to shield convicted lawmakers.

"There is no question of resigning," he told reporters on board his special aircraft while returning from New York after a meeting with US President Barack Obama and attending the UN General Assembly session.

He also said that he does not get "upset easily".

Gandhi had said that the ordinance that was passed by the cabinet, headed by Manmohan Singh, was "complete nonsense" and should be "torn down and thrown away."
