They spoke in Kannada, because, it is convention in Dakshina Kannada to make formal communication in Kannada.
I am sure immediately after the press meet is over, they conversed in tulu with each other.
Tulunadu people should exert heavy pressure on their MPs, so that Tulu is included in the 8th schedule of the Indian constitution.

Also DK and Udupi needs to be renamed as tulunadu districts . Also make all employees in govt. sectors and banks inside DK and udupi to learn TULU.... Because these are the people who make us to speak non tulu languages...which makes older tulu people tp struggle..not to forget even in courts.... Jai tulunad!

I'm surprised the way people in Mangalore behave nowadays. When I speak to people they answer in Kannada. The more the city become cosmopolitan I'm afraid Tulu language will be forgotten and very rare people may speak the language. Some corrective action need to be taken.

There was an article in VIJAYA KARNATAKA, Bangalore Edition, yesterday 17th Feb, on the need of inclusion of TULU in 8th schedule. Author has explained the Tulu's history, culture, contribution, reason for delay in the inclusion etc etc. Article also mentioned about this event on Feb 24.

According to the author BHOJPURI and RAJASTHANI languages are all set to be included in 8th schedule this month/year. However there is no mention of TULU. Our BIG BIG POLITICIANS sitting in Delhi have to make sure we don't miss the opportunity this time. It is not at all a big task for them if they have WILL towards it. I hope this time it will be materialized. State Govt did a very good job by introducing tulu in schools.

Jai tulu.. Long live Tulu..

Tulu Language has 2000 years of history which deserves to be in the 8 th schedule of Indian Constitution.Dr,Sri Veerendra Heggde, who is staunch supporter/patron Tulu Language in undivided districts contributed a lot to take this oldest language to the door of Central Govt to be in the 8th schedule and conducting TULU VISHWA SAMMELANA in Ujire of Belthangady Taluk.In one of the program of TULU Language in Ujire( I did participate)Dr Heggade stressed to take this language to next generation as speaking Tulu in home becoming rare.I request Organizer to include Dr Heggade in this convention which will bring more color to the TULU CONVENTION.I wish this function good luck and hope our voice of request will heard by the DELHI RULERS.
