In any case, the vast majority of the general population need the name ‘Bangla’. In English it will be “Bengal” so that there will be no perplexity with the name of neighboring Bangladesh.”
“At whatever point we leave India or to some other state we are known as individuals from Bengal. In 2011 we had once proposed to change the name of the state, yet it was kept down by the Center.
