The security of BSP president Mayawati has been scaled down to that of a 'former chief minister'.
A government official today said the security personnel deployed at her residence in Lucknow and Delhi have been reduced to her present status of former chief minister.
The strength of her security personnel at these places was earlier around 400, the official said.
The number of vehicles in her convoy has also been cut down to ten from forty.
Mayawati would, however, have Z-Plus category security, the official said.
Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav has been extended security granted to the state chief minister, he added.
