Will infighting cost Congress the Rajasthan elections?

Tomorrow, the state of Rajasthan goes to polls. It has been following a pattern since the 1998 elections, choosing to oscillate between the BJP and Congress every five years, constantly voting against the incumbent government that failed to impress them. The stage is set for the Congress to win but their infighting seems to be holding them back. Rajasthan correspondents Deep Mukherjee and Hamza Khan join us to discuss which party will pull through and why this is significant for the 2019 elections.
