Stating that sanitation workers were doing an "important job", Bommai said distribution of electric vehicles is one among several schemes of honouring their work.

"The sanitation workers move in cars in western countries and now the same thing is happening here. Now they are moving in scooters and days are not far off when they travel in cars," the Chief Minister said.
