"Negligence of casteist BBMP cost Ms Shilpa, a Powrakarmika, her life! We submitted letters, held placards, petitioned BBMP for PPEs, for testing but they weren't moved. Join in a candlelight vigil at 7pm to demand action," it tweeted.

Pourakarmikas are considered frontline workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as they are out working and cleaning the city streets even during lockdown. Many have tested positive for COVID-19 and there have been complaints that they were not given adequate safety gear.
