KATHMANDU: With water sources drying up in many parts of the country, people have been reeling under acute scarcity of drinking water. Due to inadequate rainfall and prolonged drought, most water sources are either drying up or retreating.

Met officials at the Metrological Forecasting Division (MFD) under the Department of Hydrology and Metrology said that the ongoing dryness is the most severe in the last 30 years.
