The district had its own set of challenges so the administration had to calibrate its response accordingly”, he said.

Competitive and comparative federalism works only in theory but in reality the way the systems are designed doesn’t seem competitive and it is all about coming together and working towards something, he stated, elaborating, the Constitution binds the Centre and States in a beautiful way and All India Services plays an important role in the scheme.
