Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said on Wednesday that a team of Food Corporation of India (FCI) had found that his claims about wheat purchase scam in Madhya Pradesh were true.

In a statement here, the Congress general secretary said that FCI team had found that in Rajgarh, wheat was purportedly purchased from farmers who had not even sown the crop.

In many cases, on-paper procurement exceeded the total yield from the area, Singh alleged.
Un-irrigated lands were shown as irrigated ones and their wheat yields were inflated, he added.
