Beltangady: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reacted positively to the request put forth by a delegation of Tulunadu which met him at New Delhi on Wednesday August 31, to include Tulu in the eighth schedule of Indian Constitution. Once this is done, this language will be recognized as one of the official languages of the country.

Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari, Dr D Veerendra Heggade, who led the delegation to New Delhi, stated that the PM has promised to take steps on this request at the earliest. He said that the delegation met Modi and handed over a memorandum seeking official language status for Tulu.

Heggade said that the delegation pointed out to the PM that about one crore people settled in Karnataka, Kerala, Mumbai, and other places speak Tulu, when urging him to bring it under the eighth schedule of the constitution.
