The demand to declare Tulu as the second official language is longstanding and in 2008, former CM BS Yediyurappa also said that Tulu will be declared as the official language. There were also many campaigns regarding the need to make Tulu the official language as a large section of the people speak the language in coastal Karnataka region such as Udupi and Mangaluru districts.
