What causes Rayalseema to become drier every passing year?
Climate changes + failure of any systems to develop during break monsoon period near south bay + any lows are too far away in north bay + failure of NEM monsoons + near arid desert like conditions (no trees / lack of trees) + rain shadow region.

Very interesting article please read:

Pattiseema is the first project to be completed under revised national river interlinking project. Water is essence of life. On one side we have excess rains other side no water! Hope Modi government gives more importance to such projects.
