    Lord Janardana is Bhagwan Vishnu/ Krishna. As per Vaishnavite belief and the Puranas that consider him as their isht, he is the supreme Brahman.

Who is lord Janardana?? why is he called the prime cause of the material universe and param brahma?

Janardana means one who gives happiness to people. Janardana is one of the name of supereme God who manifest in the form of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Even though Janardana is associated with Vishnu (Vishnu Sahasranama name 126), it is the name of Supereme God or Param Brahma. It is also used for Lord Shiva in Shivasahasranma.

is there any scriptural proof for that?

Thus the one only god, Janárddana, takes the designation of Brahmá, Vishńu, and Śiva, accordingly as he creates, preserves, or destroys." VISHNU PURANA
