New Delhi, Dec 28 (ANI): External Affairs Minister SM Krishna has responded strongly to the comments made by Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor on twitter, a social networking site with respect to India's new visa rules.

SM Krishna on Monday said the government would act according to the guidelines set by the Home Ministry for visa regulations.

"Policy matters should not be discussed in the public domain," he added.

The home ministry introduced new visa regulations on November 4, keeping in mind the disclosure about the abuse of tourist visas by 26/11-terror suspect David Coleman Headley.

In the website twitter, Tharoor has pointed out if the new visa regulations would in fact build up the security commenting that the 26/11 terrorists had no visas.

Tharoor had further tweeted that the concern was not security versus tourism.

Through the new visa rules, the government wants to avoid any future situation of a terrorist staying in the country on a tourist visa. (ANI)
