Bhandare’s tenure as Governor was five years and seven months. He visited all the districts during his tenure. He was very popular among children.

He instituted the Governor’s trophy for the students who performed well in dance, music and drawing. Speaking about the award, he said the trophy would act as an inspiration for the students to do well in these fields.

Principal Secretary to Governor Parag Gupta, Special Secretary to Governor SP Mishra and other officials were present. Bhandare will leave the State on Sunday.
