Lucknow, Mar 17 (ANI): Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo has faced yet another blow after her party's disastrous performance in the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls, as the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in the state has withdrawn around 400 security branch personnel and security cars including escort and pilots from her security cover.
Mayawati will, however, be provided Z-plus security.
BSP, whose rule was marred by allegations of corruption and scam, failed to make much of an impact on the electorate despite operation clean up by Mayawati.
BSP had won a majority in the 2007 elections (206 seats), sewing up a rainbow coalition of Dalits, upper castes and Muslims, but this time, fared poorly and was reduced to 80 seats.
On the other hand, the Samajwadi Party (SP) led by Akhilesh Yadav won 224 of the 403 state assembly seats. (ANI)
