Favouring its alliance partner SAD's stand on inclusion of the issue of Chandigarh's transfer to Punjab in the NDA's agenda, Pradesh BJP on wednesday said it will take up the issue with the party's central leadership.

"Issue of transfer of Chandigarh to Punjab is always on the BJP's agenda and we will support SAD on the issue when we take it up with our central leadership", State BJP Chief Rajinder Bhandari, who was here to assess the party's preparations in view of the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls told reporters.

SAD has long been demanding inclusion of the issue in the NDA's Common Minimum Programme.

However, inclusion of the issue in the NDA's CMP may affect the coalition's newly forged ties with the Indian National Lok Dal in the neighbouring state of Haryana, which has always staked its claim on Chandigarh.
