I use Emacs in command-line always on my Ubuntu 14.04 machine. And I use two languages frequently. Bengali/Bangla and English. Problem is when I use Bangla, commands with Ctrl as modifier work fine (e.g. C-x C-s) but with Meta they are not. e.g. M-x is not opening the minibuffer instead Emacs understands it as M-ূ. Is there any way to use Meta like Ctrl?

ESC as a prefix in the same manner that you would use meta as a modifier, like so:
Note that you don't have to hold escape down, you can press the two keys sequentially.
You can also do things like
ESC C-e to simulate
