Sri Lanka today (Thursday) gave the green-light to two wind power developments planned by a unit of India’s embattled Adani Group, previously the subject of controversy over claims that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi helped billionaire owner Gautam Adani win business in its island neighbour.

The Sri Lankan Board of Investment said it approved installation of wind projects in Mannar and Pooneryn by Adani Green Energy (AGE) at an investment cost of $442m.
