Four million people in India fear deportation

Rights group say BJP is turning the citizens register into a political weapon.

    Tuesday could be the last time millions of people in India get to vote.

    These are people in the northeastern state of Assam and their names are not on a list which separates citizens from undocumented migrants.

    They could now be stripped of their citizenships and deported.

    Al Jazeera's Faiz Jamil reports from Assam.
