No decision to grant Northern energy project to India – minister

No decision has been taken to grant the Northern energy project to an Indian company, Co-cabinet spokesman – minister Ramesh Pathirana stated.

He was responding to a query raised at the Cabinet briefing this morning (07), asking whether the project was granted to the Adani Group of India.

Earlier, Opposition MP – Patali Champika Ranawaka had alleged that the government is planning to hand over three northern islands of the country to India’s Adani Group to construct a 500MW Wind and Solar energy plant.

Meanwhile, the the Chinese embassy in Sri Lanka had tweeted last week that the Sino Soar Hybrid Technology, being suspended to build Hybrid Energy system in 3 northern islands due to ‘security concern’ from a third party, has inked a contract with Maldivian gov’t on 29 Nov to establish solar power plants at 12 islands in the Maldives.
