Centre refuses to change West Bengal's name to Bangla, says Constitutional amendment needed

The Bharatiya Janata Party-led Union government on Wednesday refused West Bengal Chief Minister's Mamata Banerjee's demand to change West Bengal's name to Bangla The government said that Constitutional amendment is needed to change the name of a state.On July 26, 2018, the West Bengal assembly had passed a resolution to change the state's name to 'Bangla' from West Bengal. The resolution was sent to the Union home ministry for approval.
West Bengal Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim said, "The name changing process first started in 2016 when the state proposed three names in three different languages -- 'Bangla' in Bengali, 'Bengal' in English and 'Bangal' in Hindi. However, the Centre rejected the proposal and asked for a single name. Accordingly, we amended the proposal and proposed a single name."
