The United Provinces Kisan Sabha was set up in February 1918 by Gauri Shankar Mishra and Indra Narayan Dwivedi. In October 1920, the Awadh Kisan Sabha came into existence. However the need for a central organisation of the peasants was felt by the socialists and the communists. Their efforts led to the formation of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) in 1936 with Swami Sahjanand Saraswati as the president and N.G. Ranga as the general secretary. The Kisan Manifesto, which was adopted in August, contained radical demands, such as the abolition of zamindari, graduated income tax on agricultural income, granting of occupancy rights to all tenants and scaling down of interest rates and debts. A number of CSP leaders and communists follow ing the 1935 Comintern decision to follow a ‘united front’ strategy joined the AIKS. Acharya Narendra Dev, Indulal Yagnik and Bankim Mukherjee were some of the prominent leaders of AIKS. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
