With BJP demanding a Bharat Ratna for Sachin Tendulkar for his cricketing feats, Congress on Wednesaday 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.
