Singh made the dig at Chouhan as the Congress stepped up its campaign against the BJP government in the state over the Vyapam scam by organising a statewide bandh. "Shivraj doesn't know the meaning of the term whistleblower and his proposed statewide yatra on the issue of Vyapam is an attempt to protect those involved in the scam," Digvijay told reporters.

He was responding to a question on the BJP's proposed yatra (march) in the state projecting Chouhan as the one who exposed the scam by ordering a probe into it. The BJP state unit is planning to organise a yatra to be led by Chouhan over Vyapam scam in August, the date for which is yet to be finalised.

Significantly, the petitions filed by Digvijay and two whistle-blowers -- Dr Anand Rai and Ashish Chaturvedi – in the Supreme Court had resulted in the Apex Court ordering a CBI probe into the high-profile scam.
