Feb 11, Colombo: Sri Lanka Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe said today that the opposition should unite from grass roots level to defeat the Rajapaksa regime and they can divide to contest the elections.

The Opposition Leader expressed these views addressing the gathering after signing an agreement between several opposition parties for a common political programme.

Wickremasinghe said that the united opposition would be the center to rally all the forces against the Rajapaksa regime.
