Rebellion in the Countryside

The Non-Cooperation Movement spread to the countryside from the cities. It started with the struggles of peasants and tribals in the countryside. The movement in the countryside was against talukdars and landlords who demanded high rents and a variety of other cesses from peasants.

Baba Ramchandra – a sanyasi who had earlier been to Fiji as an indentured labourer, led the peasants in Awadh. The peasants had to work for less or with out payment. As tenants they did not have any security or right over the leased land. The peasant movement was to fight against all these.

Jawaharlal Nehru, Baba Ramchandra and a few others set up the Oudh Kisan Sabha by October. Within a short period this movement spread through out the other villages.
