Thiruvananthapuram: Many problems continued to haunt the state school Kalolsavam even as it entered the third day. The venue of Kolkali had to be changed from VJT Hall to Priyadarshini Hall at East Fort as the stage did not meet the specification prescribed.
Following this, the event was delayed by about three- and-a-half hours and it started only at 5.30 p.m.
Kerala Natanam on the main stage at Putharikandam maidan also witnessed a ruckus following the disqualification of five participants whodid not turn up in time.
This resulted in the event being delayed twice following the protest by students and parents who barged into the stage.
Though the students wanted to meet DPI M.S. Jaya, she refused.
Later, officials allowed them to showcase their talents on the sidelines of the venue. However, they were not given permission to compete.
