    Arvind Kejriwal seems to suffer from a persecution complex. For a man who received the most thumping mandate in Indian electoral history, he could have shown a greater amount of confidence and self-assurance. But he has been consistently railing about how everyone — and especially Narendra Modi — is out to get him and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government. His latest salvo takes the cake.

So he is unable to think logically about

  • Drop in the ocean: India's strategic oil reserves unlikely to stir market

    By Keith Wallis and Henning Gloystein SINGAPORE (Reuters) - India's initial plan to build-up its strategic petroleum reserves (SPR) is not shaping out to be the dramatic event that some in the market had hoped could help reignite global oil demand. While New Delhi has not shown its full hand in revealing its intentions, the first reports that SPRs might provide 90 days of net import coverage had stoked industry hopes of an important new pillar of oil demand. Indications now, however, are for much far less than this: shipping brokers say it's possible the entire initial SPR build-up in the world's third-biggest oil consumer could be handled by just a handful of Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) tankers.
