In one of the greatest moments in cricket history when India defeated England in the Natwest final, legendary cricketer Sourav Ganguly famously took off his jersey and waved it in the air in retaliation to cricketer Andrew Flintoff celebrating by taking off his jersey in a match against India in Mumbai.

Veerappa Siragannavar, a BJP candidate, is perhaps a big Ganguly fan. The BJP leader revived the memories of the 2002 cricket final when he took off his shirt to celebrate his victory in the Karnataka Urban Local Body (ULB) polls on Monday.

The results for the Urban Local Body (ULBs) elections were declared in Karnataka on Monday with the Congress leading in 982 wards, the BJP in 927 and the JD(S) in 375. A total of 2,664 wards had gone to polls in 105 ULBs. Veerappa, who won ward no. 19 in Bagalkote municipal council, took off his shirt and paraded in the streets – a la Sourav Ganguly. It did not take long for Twitter to start comparing Veerappa’s victory celebrations with the famous cricketer.
