He made the appeal at a function held on Friday to announce the successful decoding of the buffalo genome.

The minister said economy and politics should not be mixed for the sake of national development.

He visualised rapid progress within a short time if trade was advanced by “reaching a consensus on economics”.

“Let the politics be in its own place. Let the economy advance at its own pace,” Tofail said.

He later unveiled the sequence of the buffalo genome.

A group of scientists of Lal Teer Livestock Ltd decoded the genome of buffalo in cooperation with a Chinese research organisation – Beijing Genome Institute – becoming the first in the country to sequence DNA of any animal.

One of the researchers, Moniruzzman, said the breakthrough would help improve the buffalo species.

It will also contribute to meeting the domestic demand for meat and milk.

Prime Minister’s International Affairs Advisor Gowher Rizvi and Chinese Ambassador in Dhaka Li Jun were also present.

  1. The BAKSAL organizer Tofail believes in autocracy and not democracy. That is why he was allowed to be a minister for a screwed up second term of Hasina the daughter of None other than the so called the “father of the nation”. This father of the nation destroyed democracy in 1974 with the advice of this Tofael Ahmed. Tofael Ahmed should live in North Korea. The reason why I say this is because, he wanted the Sheikh Mujib to be the President forever like the ruthless President of North Korea. Tofael is a tired man. He should seek psychological help. He should retire and keep espousing the good things he did when he was a student.

  2. Tofael knows very well, businesses are very much part of the politics in Bangladesh. The FBCCI President is a AL appointee. Salman Rahman stole money and is totally complicit with AL. He was bankrupt in 2006 and became the richest man after AL came to power. Is Salman a businessman or a criminal? This Tofael should talk about this. the so called businessmen are part of politics and therefore, no one can dissect politics from business as it is the crooked business interests that helping Mr. Tofael’s party.
