UPFA Parliamentarian Dinesh Gunawardena said that the Joint Opposition was the only anti-UNP force in the country, adding that Mahinda Rajapaksa had given all the leadership and support required to the Joint Opposition to restore strength to the anti-UNP force in order to pursue the next political  programme, which is what is seen emerging today.

The next political programme can be formulated as a political party, a political front or a political alliance, he further noted.
In the recent past, Mahinda Rajapaksa remains the only popular, national anti-UNP leader in politics and even today he still remains the same, the leader of the Joint Opposition maintained.(RLJ)
