Row over invalid degree
In 2023, Mahua Moitra from the All India Trinamool Congress (AITMC) alleged that Nishikant’s educational qualifications, which he mentioned in his affidavit submitted to the Election Commission of India, are fake. She highlighted that Nishikant’s age was just 10 years old when he passed his 10th grade. She also said that his MBA degree is not valid because, based on the information she got through an RTI request, there was no student by the name of Nishikant Dubey at Delhi University in 1993. She asked the privilege committee of the parliament to investigate this matter and if found guilty, to remove him from the Lok Sabha. [7]Hindustan Times In reply to these allegations, Nishikant called Mahua Moitra 'Nagar Vadhu (royal courtesean), which further questioned the behavior of Nishikant. [8]Twitter - Nishikant Dubey

Defamed Hemant Soren, Jharkhand CM
In December 2022, during a parliament session, Nishikant remarked that the CM of Jharkhand, Hemant Soren, is himself a 'rapist' because he was charged for the crime in 2013 and Maharashtra Government has recommended for CBI inquiry into the matter. That is why he is not taking any action against the people who chopped a woman into 50 pieces. [9]The New Indian Express

Promoted Casteism
In September 2018, Nishikant shared a post on her social media platform in which a backward class youth named Pawan Sah washed Nishikant's feet, wiped them with a cloth and then drank that dirty water. Nishikant was slammed by the people for this act of empathy and discrimination towards a lower class man. [10]The National Herald
