One of the world’s most popular revolutionaries, former President of Cuba Fidel Castro, has died at the age of 90 due to long term illness, reported the Cuban media. He served as Prime Minister of Cuba from 1959-1976 and then served as the President from 1976-2008 under one party rule system. Castro made Cuba the first western country to adapt single party socialist state under the rule of the communist party.
Castro, along with his brother Raul Castro and Che Guevara, played a crucial role in the Cuban revolution to dethrone the then president Fulgencio Batista by the guerrilla war in the year 1959. He is also one of the most controversial leaders of the world. While the Cuban exiles are cherishing this moment, the leftists are mourning the death of their iconic leader.
