Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also the daughter of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, unveiled the cover of Bangabandhu's third book titled 'Amar Dekha Naya Chin' (The New China as I Saw).

She said a Pakistan delegation comprising Bangabandhu, Tofazzal Hossain Manik Mia, Ataur Rahman, Khandakar Mohammad Iliyas and others visited China in 1952 to attend a peace conference there.

The prime minister quoting Bangabandhu’s book said that the Father of the Nation for the first time delivered his speech in Bangla in the conference.

In the book, she said, the Father of the Nation also narrated the socioeconomic condition of the people, including farmers, workers, students even the children of new China.

"Bangabandhu visited China not only as a tourist, he also witnessed various issues. We got him as a tourist, observer and also a critic in the book,” she said.

The prime minister said Bangabandhu paid the visit to China after being jailed for two and a half years by the Pakistani rulers.

Sheikh Hasina said Bangabandhu as a political leader closely witnessed the change of the development of China and he also highlighted the bad state of the people of Purba Bangla.

The prime minister said the Father of the Nation went abroad at that time just after being tortured by the Pakistani rulers.

The premier said that the people could feel good and know about many things on new China if they read book 'Amar Dekha Naya Chin'.

Sheikh Hasina said after visiting China, whatever predictions Bangabandhu made about China, today’s China has reached that position gradually.

She thanked poet Tariq Sujat for his help in publishing the book as he collected photos, monogram and information of the peace conference.

the PM has inaugurated the month-long Amar Ekushey Book Fair- 2020 on Bangla Academy premises and at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital on Sunday afternoon.
