Protests temporarily called off at Adani's south India port

Construction by the Adani Group at the port had been halted because of objections from a mostly Christian fishing community which said the port was causing erosion that undermined their livelihoods. The fishing community will leave their protest shelter and the decision was taken after a discussion with the state government, protest leader Fredy Solomon told Reuters.

Protests temporarily called off at Adani's south India port

Protests were temporarily called off at Adani's Vizhinjam seaport in the southern Indian state of Kerala after more than four months of agitation, a protest leader told Reuters late on Tuesday. Construction by the Adani Group at the port had been halted because of objections from a mostly Christian fishing community which said the port was causing erosion that undermined their livelihoods.

The fishing community will leave their protest shelter and the decision was taken after a discussion with the state government, protest leader Fredy Solomon told Reuters. Adani Group did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
