To keep govt on toes, BJP will form shadow Cabinet

The leader of the BJP legislative party on Friday announced that the party would emulate the concept of a shadow Cabinet that is followed in several countries.

Under the system of a shadow Cabinet, a selected group of leaders from the Opposition form an alternative Cabinet, led by the Leader of Opposition.

The shadow leaders are entrusted with the responsibility of keeping a check on government policies from the outside.

With Harsh Vardhan as Leader of Opposition, each BJP MLA will be allotted a department and will act as a shadow minister.

"In some cases, more than one MLA would shadow a particularly important department. The BJP, which has always been at the forefront of progressive change, will improve governance in Delhi through positive opposition," Harsh Vardhan said.
