Former Karnataka chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda today said there was confusion among the party cadres over party leader B S Yeddyurappa threatening to quit the party and launch his own party.

Speaking to reporters here he said this should end soon and the party should brace up for the coming Assembly elections.

He said the central leaders had asked the party leadership in the state to try and restrain the rebel leader from forming a regional party. "We are making efforts. I feel the party is more important than an individual," he said.

Regarding former Union Minister S M Krishna's return to Karnataka to bolster Congress and its implications to the BJP, Mr Gowda said, "I have great respect for the senior Congress leader. He has said that he has travelled eight lakh km as External Affairs Minister and has returned home to take some rest."
