Washington, Oct 28 — Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, an emerging Republican party star, believes it's still way too early to announce whether or not he's running for president in 2016.

"I don't know what I'm going to do in 2016," Jindal, the head of the Republican Governors Association and a former

member of the US House of Representatives, told Fox News Sunday. Jindal said he wants to focus on "winning the war of ideas" before making a definitive decision on his presidential ambitions. "As Republicans, we have a lot of races we have to win before then," he said.

"We've got to be more than the 'Party of No,'" said Jindal, who recently launched a new programme called "America Next" to help form a new conservative message for the party.

Jindal highlighted the association's initiative that revolves around "detailed policy solutions" to problems like failing education systems and high unemployment, which he hopes will erase the perception of the Republican Party as "the party of no."

"We need to show voters conservative principles work. And to see them working, you don't need to look any further than our state capitals," Jindal said.

Jindal said Republicans "don't need to change our principles" or "become a second liberal party," but he said the Republican party needs to focus on having a more positive message." Jindal said shortly after the 2012 elections that his party needed to stop being "the stupid party" - a reference to unhelpful things that certain Republican candidates said on the campaign trail.
