Known for his unique and frequent protests, most often on issues that affect people the most, Vatal Nagaraj took to the streets on Sunday on a bicycle.

Driving home the point that most people cannot afford to buy petrol given that its price was hiked yet again this week, Mr. Nagaraj, leader of the Kannada Chaluvali Vatal Paksha, cycled with his team from Mysore Bank Circle to Kempe Gowda Bus Stand and back in protest against the increasing fuel prices.

He demanded that the Union government withdraw the hike as it is impacting prices, even of other commodities.

A large contingent gathered to support him at the Mysore Bank Circle.
