"We deeply mourn the death of Commander Fidel Castro," Chairman said.

Extending deepest condolences to the Parliament, the government and the friendly people of Cuba, Speaker said Castro governed Cuba for 47 years by sheer charisma and iron will.

In the Rajya Sabha, Ansari said Castro, who was Prime Minister of Cuba from 1959 to 1976 and President from 1976 to 2006, was a champion of anti-imperialism and anti-colonialism and a leading light of Non-Alignment Movement.

Castro visited India twice in 1973 and 1983 and Castro was a good friend of India, Ansari said, adding his death had caused a irreversible loss of Cuba and world at large.
