25 February 2015, Nirapad News: Awami League is doing politics for the welfare of the country and its people. The ruling party is not doing politics of retribution as it does not believe in political revenge, Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed told the reporters after holding a meeting with Swedish Ambassador Johan Frisell who called on him at his Secretariat office on Wednesday afternoon.

Tofail came up with the comment when his attention was drawn to the report that a Dhaka court had issued a warrant of arrest for BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia as she did not appear before court today to attend the hearing of her two graft cases. The court on Jan 23 had fixed today for hearing of Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust corruption cases, filed against her by the Anti Corruption Commision in 2008 and 2011 respectively.

During the meeting Tofail and Frisell discussed trade and business between Bangladesh and Sweden and matters related to the interest of both countries.
