The battle for Barmer in Rajasthan is replete with political histories and changing dynamics. Manvendra Singh is the son of BJP veteran Jaswant Singh. The veteran leader left the party he helped found just ahead of the assembly elections in Rajasthan last year. Upset over differences with former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and ticket denial to his father in the 2014 national elections, Manvendra Singh hopes to set past wrongs straight. Now on a Congress ticket, he takes on the BJP's Kailash Chaudhary. But in Barmer, will caste equations take precedence or will the magic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi still work? People at a popular tea stall discuss the political and social dynamics of Barmer.
