President Maithreepala Sirisena stated that an individual cannot ensure election victory merely because he or she serves the country.
The president made this remark while addressing the gathering of the book launch of Minister Wijayadasa Rajapaksha’s work titled C.P. de Silva, the Minnery Deviyo.
The book, a long overdue biography of the late C.P. de Silva written in English and Sinhala was launched at the BMICH last evening.
Both President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe were present at the event.
