Udupi, Feb 8: “Kannada language will be given priority in the state”, said Minister for Kannada and Culture Sunil Kumar here today.
“We cannot think of any other language other than Kannada. The activities of Tulu will always go hand-in-hand with that of Kannada in the homeland. We are not asking for a separate Tulunadu but we are asking for a second spot for the Tulu language,” he said.
“Kannada is being given the highest position and respect. There is a similar process of according priority in other states as well. A committee has been formed to discuss the pros and cons after receiving several appeals for giving Tulu the second position. The government will take a decision on the basis of the report from the committee,” the minister said.
