যৌবনে আপাদমস্তক বিপ্লবী ফিদেল কাস্ত্রো চে গুয়েভারার বন্ধু ও সহযোগী ছিলেন। হাভানা বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে পড়াকালীন বামপন্থায় দীক্ষিত হন তিনি। ডমিনিক প্রজাতন্ত্র ও কলম্বিয়ায় দক্ষিণপন্থী সরকারের বিরুদ্ধে বিদ্রোহে যোগদানের পর কাস্ত্রো কিউবার বাতিস্তা সরকারকে উৎখাতের ছক কষেন। ব্যর্থ অভ্যুত্থানের জেরে ১ বছর জেলে কাটিয়ে তিনি পাড়ি দেন মেক্সিকো, ভাই রাউল কাস্ত্রো ও চে গুয়েভারার সঙ্গে গড়ে তোলেন বিপ্লবী দল, দ্য টুয়েন্টি সিক্সথ জুলাই মুভমেন্ট। কিউবায় ফিরে এসে গেরিলা যুদ্ধের মাধ্যমে উৎখাত করেন বাতিস্তার একনায়কতন্ত্র।

No.PF-PJCA-12/2016 Dated : 01.11.2016
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110 001
Sub: Withdrawal of the proposed indefinite hunger fast in front of Dak Bhawan from 3rd November, 2016 and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016
While expressing our sincere thanks to you and the Postal Board for taking positive action for settling the demand for bonus parity to Gramin Dak Sevaks, we would like to request your sympathetic and immediate intervention for implementing the Directorate orders for payment of revised wages to Casual, Part time Contingent employees working in the Postal Department with effect from 01.01.2006.
The Directorate has issued orders for payment of revised wages (6th CPC minimum) to casual labourers in the month of January 2015. Subsequently the queries raised by some Chief PMGs were also clarified by Directorate. Even though 21 (twenty-one) months are over, the Directorate orders are not yet implemented in some circles. We have already brought the case to your notice and the notice of the concerned Chief PMGs several times, but the issue still remains unsettled. Hence we were compelled to include this demand also as the second demand of the proposed indefinite fast in front of Dak Bhawan from 3rd November and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016.
As you have assured us that the grievances of this poor and most downtrodden section of workers will be settled in a time-bound manner, we hereby inform you that we have decided to withdraw the proposed hunger fast from 3rd November and two days strike on 9th & 10th November 2016.
We once again request you to issue strict instructions to all Chief PMGs to implement the Directorate orders in a time bound manner, say, before 30th November 2016.
Thanking you in anticipation
