New Delhi: As the farmers protest is roiling towards a crescendo, Union Minister of State for Agriculture appealed to the protesting farmers to make their march peaceful.

Kailash Choudhary also reportedly stressed on the government's will to resolve the issue at the earliest.

"Prime Minister Modi wants the issue to be resolved soon. We want farmers to come to the discussion table. However, only yes and no can''t be the way to resolve this issue. If farmers want amendments in these laws, we are ready for it," the Minister reiterated.

However, he didn't spare the opportunity to single out Communists as inciting the farmers.

"I would like to appeal to farmers to keep it peaceful. It is their right to protest but there are people, like Communists, who are inciting farmers and don''t want peace in the country. Farmers need to be cautious. I expect that tomorrow''s meeting will bring some positive news," said Kailash Choudhary while speaking to the ANI.

More than 3,500 tractors and trolleys are taking part in what the organisers called a " dress rehearsal" before the bigger parade planned on the Republic Day.

At 11 am they began trudging towards Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway amid tight security.

Authorities in Delhi are planning traffic diversion at several points on Eastern Peripheral Expressway, given the protest march.

Police said vehicle would not be allowed on the expressway from Beel Akbarpur and Sirsa towards Palwal from 12 pm through 3 pm.
