When R K Singh took over as minister of state (independent charge) for power, coal, new and renewable energy from Piyush Goyal, he said he had big shoes to fill. He might not have been speaking of social media specifically, but here’s a sampler: With 1.86 million followers on his personal Twitter account and 83,000 followers on his official handle, Goyal, now the coal and railway minister, is one of the most followed ministers on social media. He also communicates regularly about the work done in his ministries. Singh’s account, @rksinghmp, has 1,464 followers. The last tweet was on September 8, informing about his two new handles, @RajKSinghIndia and @OfficeOfRKSingh; they have 345 and 397 followers respectively. None of them are verified accounts. His Facebook page has around 5,000 followers against Goyal’s 3.5 million.
