The civic workers had also expressed outrage at the MCC’s failure to implement the free breakfast scheme, which the then CM Siddaramaiah had announced for all pourakarmikas.
Mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath said that all invitations were sent out generally, and no special invitation was sent out to anybody.
The pourakarmikas had submitted a memorandum listing their demands, including abolition of the contract system, revision of the pourakarmika to population ratio from the existing 1:700 to 1:500.
Emphasising the role education played in ushering change in their life, the minister said, “It is only by educating ourselves, and our children can we expect change.
Meanwhile, some UGD workers were also upset with not being extended an invitation for the ceremony.
