Rising food and fuel prices causing resentment in India

Indian inflation remained high in October, driven by the rising cost of food and fuel.

The wholesale price index rose at an annual rate of 9.73% in October, up slightly on 9.72% in September.

The rise comes despite falls in global fuel and commodity costs, which have failed to feed through to curb rising domestic food and fuel prices.
