The BJP on Thursday condemned the demolition of a Hindu temple in Kazakhstan and expressed surprise over government's silence over the issue.

British PM Tony Blair has condemned the demolition of a Krishna temple in Kazakhstan but the PM  of India failed to comment on it, BJP President Rajnath Singh told reporters in Dehradun.

He sought immediate reaction from the Indian government and suggested that it take up his matter with the government of Kazakhstan to ensure reconstruction of the temple.

On Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit, the BJP President said although Hu had not chosen November 20 as the date of his arrival to India, the date in itself was "humiliating" as on this date in 1962 China had declared unilateral ceasefire

However, he hoped the government will sort out contentious issues with the Chinese government.

To a question, the BJP president ruled out any alliance in Uttaranchal, asserting that his party was in a very comfortable position in the hill state.

Referring to UP, the former UP Chief Minister said his party will go to the polls with other NDA partners.
