Kochi: The construction on a $900 million port in Kerala started today after a blockade by protesters from a mainly Christian fishing village over the Adani Group site was overturned, according to an Adani official.The port, which is owned by Asia's richest man, is expected to be the country's first container transhipment hub, outperforming Dubai, Singapore, and Sri Lanka in terms of infrastructure.According to an Adani official who declined to be named, we are working 247 to complete the project as soon as possible.The official's video footage showed vehicles trundling into the site without a trace of the protesters' shelter, which was then blocked by the demonstrators.

He declined to elaborate.The Kerala government has said it is committed to the scheme, which supporters claim would result in the development of jobs.The villagers said in a manifesto that they would not put an end to their demonstration until plans have been made to resettle people who have lost their homes and property due to the project and coastal erosion.In the past, environmental campaigners have staged demonstrations against another Adani project, the Carmichael coal mine in Queensland, Australia.
