New Delhi: 

As the portfolios for the new ministers in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet were announced on Friday, Jammu and Kashmir politician Omar Abdullah urged them to update their Twitter handles.

The top four ministers in the cabinet were yet profiles on Twitter.

Amit Shah, who played a crucial role in the return of the BJP at the centre, is the new Home Minister in the new government while incumbent Rajnath Singh has moved to Defence, another high-profile ministry. On Twitter, he still describes himself as the "National President of Bharatiya Janata Party / President, Gujarat Cricket Association".

"Time for all the ministers to update their twitter bios," the National Conference leader tweeted.

Nirmala Sitharaman, who becomes India's first full-time woman Finance Minister, was the Defence Minister in the previous government.  She too is yet to update her Twitter biography.
