Kathmandu, April 30 (ANI): Rains lashed Nepal for the third consecutive day on Thursday (April 30), hitting bus services in the quake-hit Himalayan country. Even as road services resumed, people could not avail them following downpour that has been disrupting relief and rescue operations in the country. The Indian government had deployed buses to facilitate the return of nationals and foreigners. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had also announced the provision of free visas to foreigners wishing to come to India. A few passengers who managed to board the buses said they have been sleeping outside the vehicle in hope of getting back home. Nepal has been receiving rain since Tuesday (April 28). Despite the efforts of relief teams, rain, aftershocks and a lack of money has left the survivors disappointed.
