The three-part book titled "Jononetrir Joyojatra" based on the political life of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was launched at the Begum Sufia Kamal auditorium of National Museum in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Speakers at the book launching function said Sheikh Hasina will remain forever a part of history of the Bengali nation for her struggle against the autocrats, outstanding role in establishing democracy, and upholding the spirit of the Liberation War, reports BSS.

The book is a compilation of published reports in national dailies edited by the prime minister’s Assistant Press Secretary Asif Kabir. It comprises around 910 published speeches of Sheikh Hasina in "Dainik Sangbad" and "Dainik Bangla" national dailies from 1981 to 1990.

Speaking at the function, the prime minister’s Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Affairs Adviser Dr Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury said that Hasina took charge of Awami League standing on debris and now she has reached a position which is imbued with her own ideals.

“Once this country was a matter of joke for its socio-economic conditions, but now it has become a role model for others, thanks to the farsighted leadership of Sheikh Hasina,” he added.

He also said that the book will play an important role towards projecting the correct history through highlighting Sheikh Hasina before the future generation.

Tawfiq also urged the people to cast their votes for "boat" in the 11th general election, scheduled to be held on Sunday, to keep up the current pace of development under Hasina’s leadership.

Former Dhaka University vice-chancellor AAMS Arefin Siddique narrated the struggle of Sheikh Hasina towards establishing democracy.

He also mentioned that this book would be an important source for the future researchers.

Columnist Syed Abul Moksud said the prime minister had fought for establishing democracy and her tales of those struggles are well portrayed in the book.

Former principal secretary to the prime minister Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, Bangabandhu Museum Curator Nazrul Islam Khan, Bir Protik Lt Col (retd) Sajjad Zahir, and chief of publication house Pathak Shamabesh, which published the book, Wahidul Haque also spoke at the event, among others.
