New Delhi: With BJP demanding a Bharat
Ratna for Sachin Tendulkar for his cricketing feats, Congress
today said that in giving the Padma awards or the Bharat
Ratna, government keeps all facts in mind and takes an
appropriate decision.

"Bharat Ratna or Padma awards are given by the
government after taking in view all facts at an appropriate
time," party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters here.

He, however, said that not only India but the entire
world respects the way Tendulkar has played over the years
and referred to the first double century in a One-Day
International scored by the Indian cricketer recently against
South Africa.
