Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati

he or she should first resign from the party`s organisational
post," the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said.

She said constitution of committees at all levels
should be suspended from September 15 till results of the
Panchayat polls were announced.

"After the polls, the party`s protest on price rise
