However, Pattom Thanu Pillai did argue that the unison would go against the Constitution and Tamil regions would starve. He was the only one to oppose. The leader representing Travancore Tamil Nadu Congress Nesamony did suggest to add the words "barring the Tamil Regions" at the beginning of the declaration. However, none of these suggestions were accepted. Narayana Pillai, Cochin Chief Minister Ikkanda Warriar and the Education Minister Madhava Menon of Madras State were serious regarding the reorganisation of Travancore Cochin State. Full support was provided by the Central Government to their efforts. The Raja of Cochin stepped down the throne on 1 July 1949. Travancore and Cochin were united. Travancore Raja became the head of Travancore Cochin State. The State Assemblies of both the states were merged together. This union witnessed a strong opposition by the Travancore Tamil Nadu congress.
Travancore-Cochin was finally created on 1st July 1949 by the merger of the kingdoms of Travancore and Cochin. Trivandrum was the capital and the Maharaja of Travancore was the head of the new State.
