A two-hour long meeting was held between the Khap panchayat members and Hooda, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Randeep Singh Surjewala and Chief Parliamentary Secretary Dharambir Singh in Pipli.
Speaking to reporters at Pipli after the meeting which ended around 10 pm, spokesman of the Maha Panchayat Sube Singh said that the talks had failed to achieve the result.
He said they had already served an ultimatum to the state government to accept their demands by Wednesday failing which they would intensify their agitation.
Hooda had earlier asked the Jat community to exercise restraint and wait for the report of the Backward Classes Commission which was expected to be submitted to the state government shortly.
Interestingly, a delegation of Brahmin community from Haryana submitted a memorandum to the Governor here demanding reservation for the community on economic basis.
Meanwhile, train services on Tuesday were disrupted for the tenth day on the Hisar-Bhiwani route as members of the Jat community protested to demand their inclusion in the OBC category.
Four members of the community are on indefinite hunger strike since Wednesday.
The Jats are also demanding withdrawal of cases against some of their community members who were booked during the stir here last year.
