History
indigo resistance movement spread in Bengal in 1860 and Shalghar Madhua organised the largest movement in the Kushtia district. Inspired by the movement, all indigo farmers in the Kushtia area refused to pay government taxes. The British government sent an army platoon under the command of GG Morrison, to investigate into the matter. Farmers could successfully negotiate with him, committed to start paying taxes provided the indigo planters would stop torturing them and had sent the army back.
