Ganesh Khankar was made the corporator in 2017 along with Srinivas Tripath. He has risen from the ranks of ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad). In the same year, he made headlines for an alleged scuffle with the media. It is also said that during this scuffle his supporters snatched a female journalist’s mobile phone at Bal Bhavan, Charni Road. This was after completion of a hearing conducted by B.B. Chavan, deputy director, education, and member of Mumbai’s district fee regulation committee (DFRC). The hearing was held after 20 students were expelled by Dahisar’s Universal School after their parents refused to comply with the fee hike and claimed it as "illegal".
