BASIRHAT: In a combative mood after a string of bad publicity on handling different issues, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said no amount of negative publicity would deter her from her goal of bringing development for the people.

“No one can deter Mamata Banerjee in serving you. I will prove to those who are out to tarnish our government through a campaign of lies, wrong. No amount of browbeating or propaganda will help,” Ms. Banerjee said accusing a section of the media of painting a bad picture of her government.

Singling out two news channels, she said that they were dishing out lies daily and listed a number of channels that should be watched.

She said canards were being spread when she was making tireless efforts to restore the past glory of West Bengal which was ruined during the 34 years of Left rule.

“I do not care about fingers pointed against me. I do not care for anybody. I only care for Ma, Mati, Manush of Bengal,” Ms. Banerjee told a rally here in North 24 Parganas district after a government function.

Ms. Banerjee, who has been named among the 100 most influential people in the world by the Time magazine in its 2012 list lamented that one did not get due respect at home.

Stating that many wanted the government to forcibly acquire land of farmers, allow SEZ to come up again and lift the land ceiling, she said “I will never do so. The people of Bengal do not believe land mafias and looters.”
