'Dear ICAI Pls Change': CA Students Float Hashtag and Memes to Demand Rechecking of Papers
After two days of consecutive protests in by chartered Accountancy students against the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), the outrage seems to now have spilled over to social media.
On Wednesday, Congress's Rahul Gandhi took to the micro-blogging site to tweet his support for the protest. The students are demanding change in ICAI rules that do not allow for examination sheets to be re-evaluated.
Almost 200 students demonstrated outside the ICAI office in Delhi on Monday and Tuesday alleging that paper evaluators have deducted marks for no reason and even correct answers were marked as wrong. Students also took to social media and floated hashtags like #dearicaiplschage and #DearICAIAmend39(4), the section that forbids paper re-checking.
The hashtag has been generating several responses. "CAs play the role of auditors. Yet, the aspirants for such crucial task are seeking audit of their answer sheets. Can there be anything more ironical?" a user wrote.

I demand that ICAI and Govt pay heed to the demands of agitating CA students. #dearicaiplschangehttps://t.co/SSjZcosryT— Neeraj Kundan (@Neerajkundan) September 25, 2019
