Close on the heels of outburst by a disgruntled West Bengal minister and criticism by a section of media, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said, she did not want to take action, but those criticising her 'would one day go away'.

"Those who are giving us a bad name will go away one day. I believe this. But I am not vindictive. I do not want to take action against anyone. I do not have any relation with those who want to sully the image of Ma, Mati Manush," Banerjee told a meeting in Kolkata.

Urging industrialists present to invest in the state, she said, a section of the media was engaged in negative publicity out of 'vested interest' and canards were being spread.

"No one can deter me in serving the people," she said and repeated 'Raja chale bazar kutta bhoke hazar'. Stating that she had fought for the people and would continue to do so as long as she lived, Banerjee said, "I do not need any palace or crores of rupees but will serve the people."

"I am prepared to sacrifice anything for the people, but I cannot sacrifice their interests. It is a government of the people by the people and for the people," she said.
