Kolkata: The West Bengal Assembly on Thursday passed a resolution to rename the State as ‘Bangla’ in three languages — Bengali, English and Hindi.

The move is aimed at climbing the alphabetical sequence of State names in which West Bengal appears last in the list now. The State will have to wait for the nod from the Union Home Ministry for the final approval of the resolution.

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 to rename West Bengal as Paschim Bango in 2011 was turned down by the Centre.
