WASHINGTON: Ending months of speculation, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal is likely to announce his 2016 presidential bid in New Orleans on Wednesday that will make him the first Indian-American to run for the White House.

When he announces his presidential bid, 44-year-old Jindal would join 12 Republican contenders that include political heavyweights like Jeb Bush and Rick Perry.

His expected historic announcement, however, has failed to generate much enthusiasm among the Indian-Americans – whose annual family income now crosses 100,000 per annum and is among the richest ethnic communities in the US – because of Jindal’s recent statements in which he sought to distance himself from being an Indian-American.
