KHAIRPUR  – Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah said on Sunday that the raids were being conducted against the elements who wanted to disturb peace in Karachi.“We have not targeted Lyari alone but have carried out raids in several other areas,” he told newsmen at local circuit house. Qaim said Lyari was the stronghold of the PPP but since certain elements have created law & order situation there, the government conducted raids at some particular places. “We knew that there would be reaction.” He said this in a meeting with traders who complained that they still were receiving chits for paying extortion money. Police have identified those criminals and some of them arrested. To a question, the CM said, “It’s not correct to say that peace is restored whenever federal interior minister visits Karachi.
