Kerala government on Wednesday made it clear that it would extend all support to the international painting and cultural extravaganza scheduled to start next week. “We will give all support other than monetary assistance to the event,” Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said in reply to queries during his weekly Cabinet briefing here.

The Finance Department probe had found that the Culture Department, under the previous LDF government, had provided Rs five crore to the biennale without insisting that the organizers follow the government norms and conditions normally attached to similar grants.

The Kochi-Muziris biennale, touted as one of India’s biggest international painting and art exhibition, ran into trouble when a group of artists approached the government alleging that the event had been hijacked and monopolized by a handful of artists to secure their narrow interests.
