|19th Chief Minister of Goa|

8 March 1954 |
|Political party||Indian National Congress|
Digambar Kamat quit the Indian National Congress (INC) in 1994 and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) when he was denied the INC ticket. In 2005, he left the BJP-led government in the state and returned to the Congress. On 25 July 2007, Kamat's government fell into crisis, as it appeared to not have a majority after resignations and alliance break-ups. However, it saved itself and went on to rule Goa for the next 5 years up to 2012. He resigned from the post of Chief Minister on 6 March 2012, after the BJP won 24 seats against INC's 9 seats in the Goa Assembly Elections held in March 2012.
Digambar is married to Asha and has two children .
