Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has stressed that most local politicians tend to ruin their political careers due to the unwelcome influence wielded by their spouses.
He stated that at a time when a discourse is taking place here concerning the plight of womenfolk, it was apt to see a book being published on the late First Lady Elina Jayewardene.
He was speaking at an event held in Colombo yesterday (30), regarding the publication of a book on Elina Jayewardene by Sagarika Dissanayake and another written on former President J.R. Jayewardene by Pradeep Jayewardene.
