New Delhi, Dec 28: External Affairs Minister SM Krishna lashed out at Shashi Tharoor for questioning the government's new visa regulations in the 'public'.

"These (issues) are not to be discussed in public. If there are any perceptions, then I think it should be sorted out within the four walls of the Ministry," Krishna said on Monday, Dec 28, while responding to Tharoor's contentious tweets on the regulations.

Krishna stressed, "the business of Government is far too serious" and "has to be conduced in a manner in which we decide."

Shashi Tharoor, who is on a vacation in Jaipur, tweeted on the new tourist visa regulations, which were introduced by the Home Ministry in the interest of national security.

Debating over the new regulations, Tharoor wondered if they would affect India's 'tourism & goodwill'.

The tighter regulations came in the wake of the foreign terrorists such as David Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana gaining easy entry into the country.

Tharoor, however, noted 'the 26/11 killers had no visas'.
