A plea for conferring Bharat Ratna on Sachin Tendulkar has been made by a Shiv Sena leader.

Mohan Rawle, former Lok Sabha member has written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh making the plea.

"India has given some best cricketers to the world and Sachin is on top among them. There are a number of records to his name in this game," said Rawle, a former member of Parliament's cricket team.

He also wanted the government to felicitate Sachin in Central Hall of Parliament during the winter session beginning on November 19.
