The voices of women often go unheard during elections. But their votes could be a game-changer for any party. Barkha Dutt sits down with a bunch of women at a roadside in Marihan village to find out what issues will be a factor when they cast their votes on 8 March.

Marihan village falls in Mirzapur district – one of the seven districts to vote in the seventh and final phase of UP elections on 8 March.

From praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s gas subsidy scheme to lamenting the lack of toilets in villages under the Samajwadi Party, these women talk about the pressing issues facing the state.
