  • Partition and Nadia
  • Food Movement in Nadia
  • Naxal Movement in Nadia

Most of the migrants came from Kushtia, the district created by the split of Nadia. Nadia, and particularly Krishnanagar, was one of the major locations of the 1966 food movement. Particularly in Nadia, most of the prominent student faces of the Food Movement joined the CPI (ML) by the late 1960s.


A very important role was played by the students of the district, especially those studying in Biprada's Pal Chowdhury Polytechnic in Krishnanagar. Some of the bidi workers like Keshto Biswas, Robi, Mani Adhikari also joined the movement and went to the rural areas of the districts. More than twenty thousand peasants participated in this struggle to take possession of the crops.

Ahead of the subsequent elections to the West Bengal Legislative Assembly in June 1977, seat-sharing talks between the Left Front and the Janata Party broke down. The election result came as a surprise to the Left Front itself, as it had offered 52 percent of the seats in the square before the election to share talks with the Janata Party.
