Tebhaga Movement (1946)
- In September 1946, the Bengal Provincial Kisan Sabha gave a call to implement Floud Commission recommendations, through mass struggle.
- The Floud Commission recommendations—two-thirds’ share—to the bargardars, the share-croppers instead of the one-half share. [Note: The bargardars worked on lands rented from the jotedars]
- The storm centre of the movement was north Bengal, principally among Rajbanshis—a low caste of tribal origin. Muslims also participated in large numbers.
- The movement dissipated soon because of the Bagardari bill.
