Lata Mangeshkar to be awarded 'Banga Bibhusan'

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar has written to Chief Minister giving her consent to accept the "Banga Bibhusan" award from the state government.

"I am deeply overwhelmed by the letter of Lata Mangeshkar ji, just received, conveying her kind consent to accept Banga Bibhusan, the highest civil award of Bengal," Banerjee said on Facebook.

"The love, respect and admiration that Lata ji has for Bengal and the way she cherishes her wonderful memories with the state and different iconic personalities of the state, as reflected in her letter, has touched me very deeply," the CM said.
