Adani Ports share price decreased by over 7% on October 28 due to the poor results. In addition to this, the company has also revealed that it is exiting its investment in Myanmar by June 2021.

The project has been under criticism since it was reported that the Adani Ports has close ties to the Myanmar Economic Corporation (MEC) that has been accused by the United Nations (UN) of committing genocide and crimes against humanity.
