“Anybody who refuses to pay will be going against the law and we don’t envisage that any governor will refuse to pay the new wage once it is signed into law.

“In our own state, the governor has stated his willingness to pay once any amount is agreed upon.

“Once it comes out, organised labour in various states will approach their various state governors for implementation.

“So, we are hopeful and we are not being negative that governors may not pay the new wage once signed, but if it happens we will rise to the occasion,” he added.
