Chamba Movement In English


 In 1895 , there was a peasant movement in the princely state of Chamba. In the administration of Raja Sham Singh and Wazir Govind Ram, there was a burden of rent on the peasants. On the orders of the British officers (forced) shramdaan was demanded. One person from each family worked in the princely state for six months in a year. The princely government used to engage the workers in the work of the state. He carried the burden of British officers, worked in homes and worked in the palaces of the king. The forced labor  did not get wages and food . The farmers, forced, took the path of the movement. 

Under the leadership of Bhatiyat Waziri, there was a movement against economic exploitation of farmers.

  • Refused to give land rent
  • The officers who collected the revenue did not allow the waziri to enter.
  • Discontinue forced labor.
  • Boycott public works and gatherings.

The British government set up a commission on the demand of the princely government of Chamba. The commission assured justice to the farmers. The farmers, tired of the movement, postponed the movement . When the movement subsided, the British government ordered the princely administration to arrest the leaders and agitators of the movement. The movement was suppressed. Many freedom fighters made significant contributions against the princely state in Chamba.
