Businessman involved in Colombo Port deal now Asia’s second richest

Indian businessman Gautam Adani, who just recently signed a deal with the Colombo Port, is now Asia’s second richest man.

Research company Hurun India said that Adani’s wealth grew almost four times from 1.04 lakh crore to Rs 5.05 lakh crore in the last one year.

Reliance Industries chairperson Mukesh Ambani continued to hold the top spot for the tenth time straight.

Adani Group recently signed a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) agreement with its local partner John Keells Holdings PLC and the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) to develop the West Container Terminal (WCT) of the Colombo Port.

The IIFL Wealth Hurun India Rich List 2021 said that the combined market capitalisation, or the total value of the stocks, of Adani Group was Rs 9 lakh crore. It said that all of the industrialist’s listed companies except Adani Power were valued at more Rs 1 lakh crore.

Adani secured the second spot after overtaking Zhong Shanshan, the founder of Nongfu Spring beverage company, a bottled water firm in China.

Adani’s brothers Vinod Shantilal Adani also featured among the top 10 in the list for the first time, moving 12 places to the eighth spot. His wealth tripled to Rs 1.31 lakh crore. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. This (Adani) is the face of Indian businessmen who enrich themselves by keeping their workers in abject poverty. Karma is a Bitch. Let’s hope they get plenty of the Bitch.

    • ஈஸ்டர் ஞாயிறு வெடிகுண்டு தாக்குதலின் போது டென்மார்க்கின் மிகப் பெரிய பணக்காரர் இலங்கைக்குச் சென்று தனது இரண்டு குழந்தைகளை இழந்தார். ஆசியாவின் மிக நீண்ட உள்நாட்டுப் போரில் ஈடுபட்ட முட்டாள்களை ஒருபோதும் நம்பாதீர்கள். அதே முட்டாள்கள் இலங்கைக்குள் உலக வல்லரசுகள் போராட நாட்டைத் திறந்துவிட்டனர். ஒரு பேரழிவு நடக்க காத்திருக்கிறது.

      கிரேட் பிரிட்டன் இலங்கையை ஆசியாவின் இரண்டாவது வளர்ந்த நாடாக வளர்த்தது, ஆனால் முட்டாள்கள் ஏழை இந்தியாவின் பின்னால் செல்ல பிரிட்டனை உதைத்தனர். பின்னர், முட்டாள்கள் இந்தியாவின் பின்னால் செல்வது தவறு என்பதை உணர்ந்தனர். பின்னர் யு டர்ன் ஆனது, ஆனால் இந்தியா இலங்கையை தனது சிறகுகளின் கீழ் வைத்திருக்க பயங்கரவாதத்தை உருவாக்கியது.

      கொடூரமான உள்நாட்டுப் போரை முடித்து, துறைமுக நகரத் திட்டத்தில் முதலீடு செய்து, போர்க் குற்றச் சாட்டுகளை எதிர்கொள்ள உதவுவதன் மூலம் சீனா முட்டாள்களுக்கு உதவியது. ஆனால் இந்த முட்டாள்கள் மீண்டும் இந்தியாவின் பின்னால் போகிறார்கள். இது முற்றிலும் முட்டாள்தனம் தவிர வேறில்லை. சந்தேகத்தின் நிழல் இல்லாமல், இலங்கை பாகிஸ்தான் மற்றும் ஆப்கானிஸ்தான் போல மாறும்.

      පාස්කු ඉරිදා බෝම්බ ප්‍රහාරයෙන් ඩෙන්මාර්කයේ ධනවත්ම මිනිසාට දරුවන් දෙදෙනෙකු අහිමි වූ අතර ආසියාවේ දිගම සිවිල් යුද්ධය කළ මෝඩයන් කිසි දිනෙක විශ්වාස නොකරන්න. ලංකාව ඇතුළේ ලෝක බලවතුන්ට එරෙහිව සටන් කිරීමට රට විවෘත කරන්නේ මේ මෝඩයන්ම ය. ව්‍යසනයක් බලා සිටී.

      මහා බ්‍රිතාන්‍යය ලංකාව ආසියාවේ දෙවන සංවර්‍ධිතම රට බවට පත් කළ නමුත් නූගත් නායකයින් දිළිඳු ඉන්දියාව අනුගමනය කිරීමට බ්‍රිතාන්‍යයට පයින් ගැසූහ. එය මෝඩ තීරණයක් බව මෝඩයින්ට පසුව වැටහුණි. පසුව ඔවුන් යූ ටර්න් එකක් ගත් අතර ඉන්දියාව ත්‍රස්තවාදය ඇති කළේ ලංකාව සිය අතේ තබා ගැනීම සඳහා ය.

      කුරිරු සිවිල් යුද්ධය අවසන් කිරීමට, වරාය නගර ව්‍යාපෘතියේ ආයෝඡනය කිරීමට සහ යුද අපරාධ චෝදනා වලට එරෙහිව සටන් කිරීමට චීනය මෝඩයන්ට උදව් කළේය. නමුත් මේ මෝඩයින් නැවතත් ඉන්දියාව අනුගමනය කරති. මෙය මුළුමනින්ම විකාරයකි. නිසැකවම, ශ්‍රී ලංකාව පකිස්ථානය සහ ඇෆ්ගනිස්ථානය මෙන් වනු ඇත.

      Denmark’s richest person visited Sri Lanka and lost his two children during the Easter Sunday Bomb attacks. Never trust the fools who fought Asia’s longest civil war. The same fools have opened the country for the world powers to fight inside of Sri Lanka. A disaster is waiting to happen.

      Great Britain developed Sri Lanka as the second developed country in Asia, but the fools kicked out Britain to go behind poor India. Later on, the fools had realised going behind India was a mistake. Then took the U turn, but India created terrorism to keep Sri Lanka under its wings.

      China helped the fools by concluding the brutal civil war, invested in port city project and helping to counter war crimes allegations. But this fools are again going behind India. This is nothing but utter stupidity. Without a shadow of doubt, Sri Lanka will become like Pakistan and Afghanistan.

  2. Indian businessman Gautam Adani does not know what is coming ;—))
