Lucknow: Amid the intense heat and humidity, heavy rains arrived in various parts of Uttar Pradesh to bring down the mercury and give some relief to the people of the state capital and adjoining areas.

The heavy rains continued for over two hours allowing the young girls and boys to hit the roads and get drenched in the first rains of the season.

As roads were dug up for sewer pipeline laying to improve the drainage system ahead of the monsoon, many low lying areas turned into pools and people had to wade through them.

Angry residents questioned the rationale behind the government's pre- monsoon jobs. Internet connectivity was also been hit at some places due to water logging or snapping of the optical fibre cable.
