New Delhi: Taking potshots at the BJP over the apparent rift on a larger role for Narendra Modi, Congress on Saturday wondered whether RSS can provide any treatment for 'Namonitis', an obvious reference to senior leaders like LK Advani skipping the party meet in Goa on health grounds.

"Today what is happening outside Advani's residence should frighten all of us. If a man who is virtually the architect of that political party is now faced with that kind of rowdyism, then the nation stands warned about what is going to come to them. That terrifies us," party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary said.

"Namonitis virus is spreading in Goa,” she added.

She said, "The country has seen the trailer. The full movie is yet to be seen. Senior most leaders are being treated in this manner. The nation remembers these things."

85-year-old Advani chose to skip BJP's National Executive meet in Goa, a group of Modi supporters staged a protest outside his 30-Prithviraj Road residence in Delhi for "opposing" greater role for the Gujarat Chief Minister.

Modi is known as "Namo" among his supporters. Party general secretary Digvijay Singh tweeted, "Full marks to Renuka. BJP suffering from NAMONITIS!! Any one from the SANGH who can treat this disease?”
