LAHORE- A crucial meeting of what is being dubbed as the forward bloc of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, will be held in Karachi on Sunday.

Senior PML-N leader Senator Zulfikar Muhammad Khosa is likely to chair the first meeting of the forward bloc. His son and former Punjab Chief Minister Dost Muhammad Khosa have already arrived in Karachi, sources said. This bloc is likely to pose serious challenge to Nawaz Sharif within the party.

Sources said that the meeting, which will be held at the residence of Liaquat Jatoi, is likely to be attended by Arbab Ghulam Rahim, Ghaux Ali Shah besides other leaders.

Earlier, Senator Khosa had claimed that he has support from several discontented PML-N leaders and workers. He further said that they could also submit their resignations in the next phase.
