“Welcome to the official Twitter account of India’s Home Minister,” was the message written in Hindi on the account that also had previous 36 tweets from Singh’s personal account.
The Twitter account was done in conformity with drive to ensure transparent and responsive government. “The Twitter handle of the Ministry will let the people know about the important developments taking place,” Singh was quoted as saying in an official release.
The ministers have been asked to put various policy initiatives and decisions related to governance in the public domain and encourage more discussions on government policies, seek feedback and suggestions from the general public.
The previous regime had also started giving updates on Twitter from June 2011 but could post only 135 tweets till October 2011 after which it was never used.
