In Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts of coastal Karnataka, which locals refer to as Tulunadu geographically, Tulu is spoken. According to a tweet from Kannada and Culture Minister Sunil Kumar, a committee led by scholar Mohan Alva has been established by the Department of Kannada and Culture to investigate the idea to designate Tulu as the second official language of Karnataka.

Within a week, the committee is supposed to turn in its report. The Tulu-speaking population has pushed for recognition as an official language. In actuality, it was added to the Constitution’s Eighth Schedule in Tulu language while BS Yediyurappa was the chief minister in 2008. He had promised that it would be recommended to the Union government at the time. Online campaigns demanding the language’s official status were started.

After Udupi native and minister Sunil Kumar tweeted about the government’s stance on the Tulu language, netizens began calling for the official recognition of Byari, Koraga, Kodava, and other languages.
