Questioning the pendency of projects in the state, Ms Banerjee said every industrialist, including the majority of media houses, are under the scanner of the central government.
She said even leaders are not being allowed to express their opinion on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Ms Banerjee said northeastern and eastern parts of the country have been neglected right from the very beginning.
