VIJAYAWADA: CPI called upon its state cadre to get ready to battle it out with the state government in its efforts to snatch away land from poor farmers in the name of land banks and provide the land to the corporate bigwigs in the name of industrialisation.

They wondered what the government proposed to do for land distribution to the landless if it takes over the last inch of land in the name of development.
