Peasant Movement in North East India (1946-1950)

Girban Ranjan Biswas (Author)

Historians situated in main land India and All India Communist records make us believe that Tebhaga Peasant Movement was only a Bengal phenomenon. They have failed to take notice of similar upheaval in the peripheral region (NE) of India. The Tebhaga Peasant Movement in the Barak Valley witnessed police firing and state repression. Nevertheless the movement successfully defined contours of the politics in the region. Contrary to the existing myth that Tebhaga Movement happened in Bengal, the present work makes an in-depth analysis of similar development in North-East India on the basis of Communist literature of Assam, police records, contemporary Newspapers and oral witnesses from the surviving participants. The work extends our understanding of Tebhaga upsurge. This work could reveal the truth that whereas in Bengal the Tebhaga Movement through far more militant, and intensive then Assam failed to get any desired result for the bargadars but in North-East India particularly Assam the Tebhaga Movement forced the Government of Assam to recognise the rights of bargadars and enact Adhiars Protection Law in 1948.
