Nikhil Wagle was physically attacked by Shiv Sena supporters multiple times for his critical remarks against the party and its leaders.[3][1][4]

In 1994, Wagle was imprisoned for a week after he criticized the Maharashtra legislators for paying fawning tributes to a deceased MLA accused of having criminal connections.[5]

On 19 June 2018, Digital web platform named mymahanagar.com was started, which seems to be a part of modernizing effort by the group to reach masses.
