The ABVP of the Delhi University has released its election manifesto and has described its agenda. By releasing its manifesto for the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls on September 12, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) used acronyms to describe their agenda. It listed its promises using the organisation’s acronyms: A — academics, sports, and co-curricular reforms; B — Bharat first; V — vision for world-class infrastructure; and P — pledge for women’s safety, security and gender sensitisation. In order to make sure that it fulfills its first demand, the ABVP came with three P’s — Pravesh or a student-friendly admission process; Pariksha, to demand flexible entrance and semester exam dates; and Parinam, to demand a timely declaration of results and fight against evaluation boycott. Under ‘Bharat first’, the ABVP wants the DU administration to introduce lectures to promote “love for the nation”.

They added that if elected to power, they would pay special attention to sports-related activities. The RSS-affiliated students' union's presidential candidate for the polls, Ankiv Basoya, also mentioned issues like remedial classes for SC, ST, OBC, and economically backward students, a 24x7 reading room on the university campus, and one-course-one-fee for all the post-graduate courses. He also batted for internship opportunities for students in different ministries and government institutions.

The ABVP candidate for the post of joint secretary, Jyoti Chaudhary, talked about her commitment towards making the campus safe for women. She also assured that sanitary napkin vending machines will be installed in all DU colleges. ABVP state secretary Bharat Khatana said they had prepared a "student-centric" manifesto. The ABVP said it would be releasing a separate "sports manifesto" in the next couple of days.
