NEW DELHI: As self-styled godman Asaram was on Wednesday sentenced for life for raping a minor girl, the Congress party posted a video on Twitter, showing him with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"'A man is known by the company he keeps' - Aesop's fables #AsaramVerdict," tweeted the party attaching the video.

A Special Court in Jodhpur on Wednesday convicted the godman for raping the minor girl at his ashram in Rajasthan in 2013 and sentenced him to a prison term for life, till his natural death.
