The West Bengal Cabinet on Tuesday has decided to rename the state as Bangla or Bongo in Bengali and just Bengal in English. The said political development is possible if Special Assembly meeting on August 29 and 30 passes the proposal brought by Trinamool Congress led West Bengal state government. A special assembly session is likely to be convened to discuss the name change. It will reportedly help to protect the culture and integrity of the state.
