PPP-Parliamentarian chairman Makhdoom Amin Fahim has said he is not the part of government nor is he eager to join the government.

Makhdoom Amin Fahim said there is no substance in the reports about his appointment as senior minister, he added. These are sheer media reports and not more than this, he remarked.

Responding to a question about his meeting with Asif Ali Zardari he told President had invited him to tea and "we enquired about the welfare of each other during the meeting. But neither he talked about my induction as senior minister nor I had talked to him in this respect, Fahim indicated.

To another question he told cooperation between PPP and PML-N was continuing. But any decision on PML-N return to cabinet will have to be taken with the mutual understanding by the heads of both the parties, he underscored.

Nothing final could be said about the arrest of Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, Lt Gen (Retd) Hamid Gul and Ejaz Shah for their alleged involvement in the incident of Karsaz as per letter of Benazir Bhutto, he maintained. But it should be ascertained from the government if it would arrest these persons in case they were found involved in this carnage, he added. Elements behind the killing of Benazir Bhutto should be arrested, he demanded.
