West Bengal Assembly passes resolution to rename state as 'Bangla'

Updated : July 26, 2018 03:48 PM IST

The move is aimed at climbing the alphabetical sequence of state names in which West Bengal appears last in the list now.
Earlier, the Centre had rejected the state government's proposals of having three names Bangla (in Bengali), Bengal (in English) and Bangal (in Hindi).
The Mamata Banerjee government's proposal of renaming West Bengal as "Paschim Bango" in 2011 was also turned down by the Centre.
