In early 2007 mobile citizenship units were sent out across the country. By 2008, citizenship had been extended to some 2.6 million people, many of them in the Terai. Yet, while the campaign was unprecedented and heralded, thousands in the lower castes, like Bohje, found themselves left behind. Poverty prevented many from taking time away from work and lack of access and security in parts of the Terai secluded many remote villages from campaign units, which only spent a few days in one area.
