Louisiana's Indian-American governor Bobby Jindal referred to himself as an "evangelical Catholic" while addressing Christian conservatives and shared his story of conversion from Hinduism, a move seen by many as an effort to garner support for a presidency bid in 2016.Jindal, seen as one of the prospective Republican candidate for 2016's presidential run, covered everything from his Catholic conversion as a teenager to high-profile battles over birth control at a commencement speech at Liberty University, the conservative Christian college in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Jindal, 42, also met a dozen politically active pastors at a private dinner Friday night and narrated his conversion story to them as well, The Washington Post reported."Jindal's session with the Christian clergy, who lead congregations in the early presidential battleground states of Iowa and South Carolina, was part of a behind-the-scenes effort by the Louisiana governor to find a political base that could help propel him into the top tier of Republican candidates seeking to run for the White House in 2016," the paper said.
