WATCH: Congress or BJP? Assam's tea garden voters undecided

Elections are not just about politicians. They are about people and issues. And what really drives their vote.

Catch is, therefore, starting a 'Meet the Voter' series to capture what different impact groups in the poll-bound states are feeling. This is true insight into the upcoming assembly elections: up-close and hyper-personal.


The tea gardens of Assam have cast their votes for the Congress since Indira Gandhi. But this time around, in arguably the most intense elections in the state in some time, the vote bank may have crumbled a bit.

How these tea tribes vote could decide the fate of the assembly elections in Assam.

Their vote counts in all the 34 constituencies of upper Assam which means they hold the key to the success of the major contenders, the BJP and the Congress.

Catch went to a tea garden in Assam and spoke with the president of the estate's workers. According to him, the votes will be divided this time around because people have been changing their minds after hearing Narendra Modi's speeches in the state.
