Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat
on Tuesday resigned following the humiliating defeat of Congress in
the assembly election.

Even as counting for two constituencies, Saligao and
Taleigao, was still on, Kamat met the Governor here and
submitted his resignation.

"I accept the verdict of the people and we are ready to
sit in the opposition," Kamat said.

The BJP-MGP coalition, which has won 22 seats in the
40-member House, is all set to form the government with
results of two assembly segments still awaited.
