Claiming "demographic changes" in the coastal state, the Congress also sought scrapping of a clause prescribing minimum 15-year domicile as an eligibility condition for government jobs.
"The clause of 15-year domicile certificate should be scrapped because even non-Goans are producing certificates to be eligible (for government jobs). If we don't stop all this, there will be a day when you will not see a Goan in Goa," the former MLA added.
He said those Goans whose forefathers hailed from the coastal state should only qualify under the 'Niz-Goenkar' category.
The BJP heads the coalition government in Goa, which also comprises the Goa Forward Party, Maharashtravadi Gomantak Party and three Independent MLAs.
It is the duty of the state government to protect the "welfare of each ethnic Goan who is succumbing to demographic changes in the state", he added.
The BJP-led Maharashtra government recently granted a 16 per cent quota in government jobs and education to Marathas under a special category classifying them as a socially and educationally backward class.
