Amra Bangalee

Amra Bangali (We are Bengalis) is a political party in India. The movement believes in the values and objectives explained by the socioeconomic theory called PROUT, founded by Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar. This movement came as a result of Sarkar's observation that the quality of life of poor people would only improve once these people are encouraged to attend to their own needs first in a manner that efficiently and sustainably utilizes natural resources. The politics of Amra Bangali are based on Sarkar's ideas of economic and political democracy. The party is organized in West Bengal, as well as in other states with large Bengali populations such as Tripura, Bihar, Orissa, Assam and Jharkhand. The only real political breakthrough the party has had was in Tripura during the 1980s, when the party entered the Legislative Assembly in connection with the mounting ethnic tensions in the state. The aims and objects of Amra Bangali are: Restoration and development of Bengali language and culture. Economic self-sufficiency. Self-determination in socio-political field. Re-organization of the territory of Bengal with all the like minded people having respect for Bengali language and culture and giving a new name “Bangalistan” to this territory.
