Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Thursday said the Third Front would not survive for long and would make no impact on the outcome of the Lok Sabha polls.
"JDS chief HD Deve Gowda has already joined hands with Congress," he alleged while talking to reporters here.
Yeddyurappa, about whose leadership a section of the party leaders are unhappy, dismissed any dissidence, asserting "we are all united".
He said "minor irritants" would be ironed out to ensure the party's victory in at least 22 of the 28 Lok Sabha seats.
Yeddyurappa who has managed to get ticket for his son BY Raghavendra from Shimoga Lok Sabha seat, has been concentrating on his home turf for his victory.
Senior leaders like BB Shivappa and Basavaraj Patil Yatnal have revolted against Yeddyurappa's leadership and threatened to launch a campaign to "save the party".
