The approved summary will now be sent to the federal Interior Ministry.

In a statement issued by the CM House, Shah said he hoped Rangers would continue to work for peace in Sindh with the same commitment.

Earlier, a senior official in the Sindh government told Dawn that Shah held a meeting with the co-chairperson of Pakistan Peoples Party Asif Zardari in Dubai on Sunday, at which the latter ordered the CM to notify Rangers’ one-year stay in Sindh with policing powers for three months.

Apart from discussing the Rangers’ powers issue with Zardari, Shah had also sought the former president’s guidance over the expansion of his cabinet to accommodate certain leaders.
