Vatal Nagarajವಾಟಾಳ್ ನಾಗರಾಜ್ is a politician from Karnataka, India. Named after the village he was born in, he is the Ex MLA of Chamarajnagar. Nagaraj is the president of 'Kannada Chalavali Vatal Paksha'.
He is singularly credited with keeping Kannada language and Kannada spirit alive in Bangaluru despite the onslaught of migration from other states and other languages.
While his intent seems genuine, his measures are criticized as extreme and fueling enmity within, otherwise, peaceful communities. His inflammatory speeches and actions demonize democracy, and raise questions why such people are not brought under the law, despite many instances of his taking law on hand. Some critics call his actions as typical to the complexity of the losers, and not contributing to increase a certain sections' productivity, while trying to eliminate the contributions of other sections.
