#002 How can District Collectors perform multiple roles?

The District Collectors in India tend to perform multiple roles. The roles can be conflicting with one another. This is like chasing with the hounds and running with the hares.

E.g.: On day 1, the District Collector accompanies promoters of an Aluminium smelter to the hills promising them to grant mining rights, land, industrial water and power, etc.

On day 2, he chairs a hearing from the affected villagers and N.G.O's on environmental clearances and land acquisition.
