Sasivarna Thevar and Velu (a Dalit legislative assembly member of the Forward Bloc). From the Congress side six Devendrars took part. There was also a delegate from the Nadar caste but nadar caste was not needed at that conference. The conference concluded that the three castes should live in harmony.
