Speaking to editors at a press meet in New Delhi on Monday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he was not considering retirement.
The PM also indicated that he would consider a cabinet reshuffle before the next session of Parliament due on November 7.
Reacting to the Supreme Court's order that rotting foodgrains should be distributed to the poor, the PM felt the Supreme Court should not get into the realm of policy formulation.
The PM said his cabinet was functioning with a much greater degree of cohesion than even the first cabinet headed by Jawaharlal Nehru, and said, "I can't say that I will shut up every colleague in my cabinet."
"I am not not aware of anything that can be called a disconnect between the Congress party and the government," Singh told the editors in his interaction.
Further details are awaited.
