Dressed in a saree, Ms Gandhi, 49, was equipped for the task with a basket on her back balanced by a band on her head. She had a scarf on her head on which the band was strapped on. She was also armoured with an apron at her waist as she took on the job.



A video shows the Congress leader taking instructions from workers of the Sadhuru tea garden on how to pluck tea leaves.





She received a rousing welcome to the tea garden earlier in the day, photos of which were shared by the Congress.



Ms Gandhi is on a two-day visit to launch the Congress's campaign for the three-phased assembly elections in the state that begins on March 27. She has been seen taking an active part in local customs and traditions during her stay.



On Monday, the Congress general secretary was seen performing a traditional 'Jhumur' dance with several young women in the state's Lakhimpur.
