Centre on Wednesday ruled out to intervene in resolving the Singur stalemate on its own, but said it would do so if approached by any of the parties involved.

"We won't intervene. It is none of our business to intervene," Heavy Industries Minister Santosh Mohan Dev told reporters in New Delhi on the sidelines of ACMA annual convention.

Asked if the Centre has chosen to ignore the issue he said, "If they come to us, we will intervene. The state government has to decide."

He said, the matter should not be made a prestige issue. Mamata Banerjee and Ratan Tata must try resolve their differences.
