New Delhi, Sep 29 (UNI) Stressing that he had been falsely targetted in the 1984 anti-Sikhs riots case, Congress MP Jagdish Tytler today said all allegations against him were baseless.

Talking to the media after getting a 'clean chit' from the CBI, the Congress leader said all along he fought alone with no support coming from any quarters.

''I had been fighting the case all alone and no one supported me on the issue'' he said.

On whether he would now join the government, Mr Tytler said he was a loyal servant of the party and would follow what the party high command said.

''Right now I have not been contacted by anyone in this regard,'' he said.

Accused of inciting violence in the post Indira Gandhi murder phase in 1984, Mr Tytler was given a 'clean chit' by the CBI in its findings report submitted to a local court here yesterday.

In its reaction, the CBI today said the case was closed as the eyewitness in the case turned hostile.

After Surendra Singh, an eyewitness in the case, retracted from his statement there was nothing we could do, it added.
