Through this hunger strike ABSU made a number of demands, which included: The Government should immediately supply sufficient food material and the food for the babies, medicine, clothes and textbook (to the students) to the inmates of the relief camps. They demanded adequate security for rehabilitation of the inmates of the camp at their respective places. The rehabilitation of the relief camp inmates should be done steadily but not hurriedly so that affected people can build up confidence on the security of their lives and property.
ABSU also demanded proper scrutiny of the relief inmates before rehabilitation in the districts of Kokrajhar and Chirang so that no illegal immigrants can be settled. They demanded protection of tribal belts and block and land belonging to genuine Indian indigenous people. Government must resolve the illegal immigrant issue with time bound policy for permanent peace and integrity in the region by updating NRC based on 1971 electoral roll.
Later the demands were sent to chief minister of Assam and also to union home secretary signed by the President and General Secretary of the organization. Members from other students unions like All Assam Students Union, All Assam Gorkha Student Union and others had also joined the programme.
