New Delhi:  The Centre has finally agreed to hold talks with the agitating Jat community in order to break the impasse between the protesting Jats and the government.

The decision to hold talks with the agitating Jats was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here on Tuesday.

The CCPA decided to constitute a two-member committee, comprising Home Minister P Chidambaram and Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Mukul Wasnik. The panel would meet the 11-member delegation of Jats led by Yashpal Malik on Wednesday.

Government will make a statement in Parliament on Wednesday on the issue, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ashwani Kumar earlier said in Rajya Sabha when the issue was raised by BJP member Ramdas Agarwal.

Aswini Kumar, however, said that Government is trying hard to negotiate and break the deadlock.
