SB 10.71.1
sri-suka uvaca
ity udiritam akarnya
 devarser uddhavo ’bravit
sabhyanam matam ajñaya
 krsnasya ca maha-matih

Translation: 
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Having thus heard the statements of Devarsi Narada, and understanding the opinions of both the assembly and Lord Krsna, the great-minded Uddhava began to speak.


SB 10.71.2
sri-uddhava uvaca
yad uktam rsina deva
 sacivyam yaksyatas tvaya
karyam paitr-svasreyasya
 raksa ca saranaisinam

Translation: 
Sri Uddhava said: O Lord, as the sage advised, You should help Your cousin fulfill his plan for performing the Rajasuya sacrifice, and You should also protect the kings who are begging for Your shelter.

Purport: 
Devarsi Narada wanted Lord Krsna to go to Indraprastha and help His cousin Yudhisthira perform the Rajasuya sacrifice. At the same time, the members of the royal assembly strongly desired that He defeat Jarasandha and rescue the kings he was holding prisoner. The great-minded Uddhava could understand that Lord Krsna desired to do both things, and thus he intelligently advised how both these purposes could be simultaneously accomplished.
