While heavy rainfall in Lahore is hindering everyday life, a video showing Punjab's Interim Minister for Sports Wahab Riaz visiting the highways after the rain is making rounds on social media for his apparent ignorance.

The video shows the left-arm pacer driving at a high speed and splashing water at other passersby.

Twitter users heavily criticised Riaz for his nonchalant behaviour.

The heavy rains in the provincial capital of Punjab broke a 30-year record in Lahore, where Lakshmi Chowk recorded the highest rainfall of 295 mm. So far 7 people including 2 children and a woman died in roof collapse and electrocution due to rain and other incidents.

Former Pakistani skipper assumed charge as caretaker provincial sports minister in March 2023.
