The left-wing student group promised to provide scholarships to all economically backward students and those belonging to the Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST).

The student body further promised inclusivity by recognising queer groups; disabled student-friendly infrastructure; reduction in canteen prices; opposition to change in syllabus; open translation cell; and effective placement cells including alumni.
