The Governor, who administered a pledge against untouchability to school students, officers and staff of the Raj Bhavan here, said he is humbled and inspired by Bapu's vision of Bharat.

"On this day, let us rededicate ourselves to building a fully developed self-confident and compassionate Bharat of his and all the martyrs' dreams in Amrit Kal," Ravi said in a tweet.
