Mangaluru: Tulu Bhasha Samrakshana Samiti Kudla staged a protest near clock tower in Mangaluru on Thursday September 29 against the District Administration’s order making Kannada signboards mandatory in buses of Mangaluru.

The protesters raised slogans such as ‘Kannada ride’ on Tulu language in Taulava Nadu, injustice to Tulu from Kannada compulsory, ‘Jai Jai Tulunadu’, ‘Tulu language should be preserved and developed’.

‘Kannadave Satya, Kannadave Nitya’ but Tulu is what we need as Tulu language is our mother tongue. They protested by holding placards demanding that it should be given importance.

Speaking on the occasion, Vikas, leader of Jai Tulunadu Sangathane and Tulu Bhasha Samrakshana Samiti, said, “Tulu language has a history of more than 2,500 years. There are more than 1000 paddanas in Tulu. It is not the language of a religion. It is the language of a region. It is a language that deserves the status of a classical language,” he said.

The protesters demanded that it be declared as a State language before it is included in the 8th Schedule. The committee activists then pasted pamphlets related to Tulu script on the City buses.
