Fidel Castro's death a 'great loss to humanity', says VS
Thiruvananthapuram: Veteran CPM leader VS Achuthanandan said that the death of Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro is a 'great loss to humanity in these times of imperialist powers spreading its tentacles all over the world.'
"Fidel gave energy and light to human struggles all over the world for half- a-century. Both Castro and Che Guevara, who functioned like twin brothers, stood as beacon lights. Though Che Guevara's death was untimely, Castro has left the scene only after successfully completing his duties. Cuba under Castro was able to achieve immense progress in health and social sectors. Castro resisted American imperialism and defeated it. He did not bend his knees before American imperialism," VS said.
