Janakpur, 08 July : Agriculture is the mainstay of the country. Nepali people depend on agriculture which accounts for around 30 percent of GDP.
However, due to the delayed monsoon, only 1 percent of the paddy plantation has taken place in Province 2 by the first week of July this year.
This is not only the problem of Dhanusha district, paddy plantation has not taken place much in all 8 districts due to the lack of water.
The sources of water have not yet been recharged due to the delayed monsoon, thereby hitting the paddy plantation.
