He is a political figure from Karnataka. Named after the town he was born in, he is the Ex MLA of Chamarajnagar constituency. Nagaraj is the president of a pro-Kannada outfit, Kannada Chalavali Vatal Paksha [1] [2] [3]

In 1964 he led a two-month agitation demanding the destruction of a 150-year-old British Raj era cenotaph pillar marking the deaths of soldiers at the Siege of Bangalore in 1791. In October of that year the cenotaph was dismantled by the Bangalore City Corporation and a statue to Kempe Gowda now stands in its place. [4]

He protested in 2017 against the comments of a famous South Indian actor Sathyaraj made nine years ago during the Cauvery Protest by Tamil Nadu Actors Association against Karnataka created some tensions. [5] [6] The protest was called off latter. In 2018 he started a new agitation in January 25 for water sharing from MAHADAYI river flowing from Goa [7] . Some political critiques question the authenticity of Vatal’s fight against Goa State for water sharing when he himself fight against Tamil Nadu government for Supreme court order to release water in Cauvery river.
