Two petitioners have filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) against the transfer of the country’s renewable energy to the Adani Group.
The complaints have been made by Sankha Chandima Abeysinghe and Bandu Ranga Kariyawasam.
Mr. Abeysinghe said that human rights have been violated by handing over wind and energy sources from Mannar to Punarin to Adani Group and by buying an electricity unit for more than Rs.20 extra from the Adani Group when a unit could have been bought for Rs.8.50.
He said that allowing a company like India’s Adani, which is the biggest environmental polluter in Asia, to create an energy monopoly in Sri Lanka is also detrimental to the economy.
