Congress chief Sonia Gandhi today condoled the demise of former Cuban president Fidel Castro.
Describing his death as a loss not limited to Cuba or a particular ideology, she said Castro led the oppressed and the striving from the front and stood up to every attempt at stifling the voice of freedom.
"His contribution to the Non Aligned Movement and his unflinching support for India's cause on various fora will always remain deeply etched in the minds and hearts of the Indian people," she said in a statement.
Cuba's former president and revolutionary icon Fidel Castro, who led a rebel army to improbable victory in his country, died at 90 years of age in Havana.
