It is way too early to think about presidential run: Jindal
Indian-American Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal has said it is too early to think about the 2016 presidential run as people of the country are not in a mood to have another four years of campaign.
"It's way too early for folks to be thinking about that. We just lost a presidential election. I don't think the people want another four-year presidential campaign," Jindal said at a Republican Party fundraiser in Jackson, Mississippi.
Jindal is considered to be a key Republican presidential aspirant, but so far has publicly denied.
"I know there's a lot of speculation about who wants to run and who doesn't want to run in 2016. As a party, and as a Republican, I say that anybody who's thinking about running for president needs to have their head examined," Jindal was quoted as saying by the local WAPT TV station.

Millions of men, women and children in India live and work in slave-like conditions — bonded labour, sex trafficking, child labour, domestic servitude and many other forms. This raises a big question mark on the efficacy of the very laws that vouch to end the inhuman practice, writes Biswajeet Banerjee “My father had taken a loan of Rs7,000 from a bhatta maalik (brick kiln owner) around four decades ago for my...
