Centre delays in approving the name change for West Bengal
16 November 2018 Current Affairs:

The Centre delays in approving the name change of West Bengal to ‘Bangla’. The state Assembly had passed a resolution in July 2018 to change the state’s name to ‘Bangla’ in Bengali, English, and Hindi.

The West Bengal government’s proposal to change the State’s name had been sent to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for consultation, as the proposed name resembles that of Bangladesh.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claimed that the Centre’s attitude to her government’s request was different from its approach to other administrations. She said that "Recently, I have been noticing that almost every day BJP has been changing the names of historical places and institutions unilaterally to suit their own political vested interests. It clearly shows deprivation to the people of Bengal.”
