Campaign for separate Tulu state comprising of DK, Udupi, Kasargod trends on Twitter


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Apr 7: Tulu organizations have started a campaign on Twitter urging the formation of a separate Tulu Rajya consisting of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Kasargod districts as the state and central governments are totally neglecting the language, which is one of the Pancha Dravida languages.

A message was sent on social media by Tulu organizations urging Tuluvas living across the globe to take part in the 'Tulu Rajya' tweet campaign on April 4. A good response was observed for this request. The CM of Karnataka, state home minister, Prime Minister and union home minister were urged to look into this appeal. A total of 84,000 people have tweeted in support of this request. In the highest tweet ratings for April 4, Tulu Rajya tweet has secured the second spot. However, Kannadigas have opposed this request of Tuluvas.
 




 
In the campaign, most of the Tuluvas tweeted, "Government has not considered the request by Tuluvas to include the Tulu language in the eighth schedule, even though this has been requested since five decades. In the world Tulu convention, a decision was taken to add the language to the eighth schedule. But the demand was not fulfilled by the state and union government. How much do we have to beg for Tulu to get its due honour? Why didn't the Karnataka government identify Tulu as an official language when the state was formed? Justice cannot be served just by saying that Tulu is a sister language. Declare a separate Tulu Rajya consisting of the districts of Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kasargod."

The tweet campaign also highlighted that the state and union governments are not giving any value to the decisions taken at the world Tulu conventions held at Dharmasthala, Adyar and Dubai. All the MLAs of Tulunadu had urged the state government to add the language to the eighth schedule. But the state government is not bothered. That is why a separate Tulu state needs to be formed, the tweets maintained.

A strong response was seen for the Tulu Rajya tweet campaign. #Tulunadu, #Stopkannadaimposition and #savetulufirst have received 35,000, 27,000 and 22,000 tweets respectively in one day. The tweets are trending and are in the second spot in the country and first place in Karnataka. Maharashtra Ekikarana Yuva Samiti (MES) has also tweeted in support of this campaign.

Dilraj Alva, honorary advisor, Yuva Tulunadu said, "As the campaign for separate Tulu state started on Twitter many netizens have expressed fierce objection. They have advised not to break Karnataka but stressed giving importance to the Tulu language in front of the state government. Some netizens have expressed their rage through tweets in support and against both Tulu and Kannada languages. On the whole, the Twitter campaign of Tulu Rajya has initiated a huge discussion."

    It’s high time Kannadigas give up their hegemony and declare Karnataka as a multilingual state thereby according due recognition to Tulu, Konkani, Kodavu and Beary languages. Further there’s no sense in calling the district as Dakshina Kannada (DK) or even Uttara Kannada (UK) where Kannada is a minor language. These districts should be renamed as Tulu Nadu and Konkan respectively. I am not in favour of any division of the state but demand that the existence of all languages in the state be recognized.

    Stop this nonsense. It will not sop with Tulu state. Later inside that we can demand for a beary state. in that we can demand for a konkani state. within that we can ask for a Christian konkani and GSB konkani state!!!!

    States were made based on the language spoken. By that logic present Karnataka should be Konkani, beary , tulunad. but wait a second what will happen to konkani ppl staying in tulunadu, or viceversa. I think this entire statehood should be removed. There should be one country, one PM and no CM.

    ತುಲುನಾಡು ಎಂದು ಪ್ರತ್ಯೇಕ ರಾಜ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ನಾನು ಎಂದಿಗೂ ಬೆಂಬಲ ನೀಡುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ನಾನು ಯಾವುದೇ ಧರ್ಮದವನಾಗಿದ್ದರೂ, ಯಾವುದೇ ಪ್ರದೇಶದವನಾಗಿದ್ದರು, ನಾನು ಕನ್ನಡಿಗ ಎಂದು ಹೆಮ್ಮೆಪಡುತ್ತೇನೆ. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕವು ಸುಂದರವಾಗಿದೆ; ನಾವು ಭ್ರಷ್ಟ, ದ್ವೇಷ ಸಾಧಿಸುವ, ನೈತಿಕ ಪೊಲೀಸ್ ರಾಜ್ಯವನ್ನು ಘೋಷಿಸಲು ಬಯಸುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. (I will never support for seperate state as Tulunadu. I am proud as Kannadiga whichever region, whichver religon I am. Karnataka itself beautiful, we don't want a corroupt, hate monger, moral policing state to be declared.)

    I never support Tulu rajya as there are lot of fringe groups in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, which will make living for minorities hell. Let it be our dear Suvarna Karnataka only.. If any atrocities are done by the fringe groups, we can at least contact our Kannadiga friends in ghatta or Bengaluru to help us. Once Tulu Rajya comes means gone.. Jai all languages.

    karNataka's plans to change the names of places by kannadifying our beloved places's names is undesirable and smacks of its imperialistic attitude. there was no need to change Mangalore's name as Mangalaooroo and moodubidri's name to moodabidire other than to alter the culture of Tulu region. there was a nostalgia and legacy to the old names like Canara, Mangalore etc. so many of the Banks, institutions that originated from our place had the name Canara. its surprising that rather than oppose the move tooth and nail to change the name of our beloved city, every media house is queuing to use the new kannadified name. why are the wishes of Kannada people imposed on Canara region. we dont identify ourselves as kannadigaru. its a known fact that tulu was never imposed on our Konkani, Byari , Urdu and moyar Malayala speaking brothers and sisters of Undivided South Canara. we all converse with each other in Tulu due to the sheer and undying love for the culture. that bond between the various communities will never be broken. lets save Tulu language and Tulunadu culture from being bulldozed by some selfish people.

    I support creation of new state Tulunadu. This will result in more focus on development in coastal region. Currently when there is big investment in Karnataka, everyone wants Bengaluru only though there is no space in Bengaluru. Once Tulunadu is created, definitely we can fight for creation of separate Railway Division with Mangaluru as headquarters, build new international cricket stadium etc. I am sure the Port and International Airport also will develop faster. Lot of companies including IT would be happy to setup centers in coastal region.

    numerically speaking, Konkani is the majority language in proposed TuluNadu... whereas tuluvas are there in TN, there is no tulu after Brahmavar till Shiroor. Konkani speakers are found everywhere throughout the twin districts both rural and urban areas....

    konkani speakers are far ahead of others in coastal belt in politics as well as economics... they are pioneers in education, hospitals, churches/temples, trade, transport, industry, business, cultural / literature... no local personality has attained the status of TMA Pai, TA Pai, G Fernandes, U S Mallya, Bhadragiri brothers, Prakash Padukone, Manjeshwar Govind Pai, Guru dutt etc. etc., not to speak of numerous Mangalurean catholics migrated to Canada, US and achieved international fame...

    Mr kBr my response to your comment was specific to the “numerically” largest population that you mentioned .. but now you diverted the topic and went on a praising spree of konkanis ... konkanis have achieved a lot and there is no denying that fact .. but your claim that they are numerically the highest is not correct ..

Apart from Malabar cuisine restaurant I haven’t really seen any restaurant that have their board in malayalam ... Also if ppl come n talk malayalam on the streets what’s the problem .. people can talk Tulu Kannada. Konkani English French or whatever ... who are you to complain ? You do realise that Kerala border is a few kilometres away so it’s obvious to have Malayalam influence in the city..

    For your kind information udupiand Bangalore generated highest revenue after Bangalore and all these are being invested in development of old Mysore region rather rest of the state, (whichever party is ruling). Now it is a high time to question about lack of development in the public sector..we got no proper rails, air route, roads.whatever we can find are in private. Lots of people go to places like Bangalore and Mumbai doesn't mean that the cities don't have potential of providing vacancy but its the old Mysore politics that wont allow development of industries in these region.

    The activists for Tulu countries say,” Tulu organizations have started a campaign on Twitter urging the formation of a separate Tulu Rajya consisting of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Kasargod districts ....” Why do they say , “Tulu Rajya” ? Why not “Tulu Nadu “ that sounds more authentic , for this word is Dravidian in its roots , colourful and reflects geography!
