UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa today said the Joint Opposition had not appointed a shadow cabinet but assigned its members ministries to observe the activities and shortcomings of the ministries.
Speaking to the media after attending a ceremony held in Kegalle today, the parliamentarian said the government was blowing the concept of a shadow cabinet out of proportion.
"This is not a cabinet as the government claims. They are just afraid of us and keep attacking us without fulfilling their duties," he said.

It is not the government who claimed it is a shadow cabinet. It is by some of the leaders of JO.

I have a question for Namal - Why Sri Lanka Shadow cabinet Minister's are frequently going to FCID and Jail on regular basis. I guess these activities also part of your portfolio? What a joke. I believe your Sri Lankan people are buffoon anymore..... God save your country!!!!
