Cintillos así no los tuvo Katiuska Blanco Castiñeira / 41 fidel castro ruz, guerrillero del tiempo nunca ningún político en Cuba, nada, ni un artículo. Hay que ver las cosas que revelé: «Exclusivo para Alerta». Fue la primera vez que ocupé el cintillo. Desde entonces me hice propietario de la primera página. En la introducción del primer artículo se afirmaba: «Haciendo graves imputaciones al Presidente de la República sobre la adquisición de distintas fin­ cas y del trato indebido que en las mismas se da a miembros de las Fuerzas Armadas —tomé hasta vistas— que allí traba­ jan como braceros y peones, así como la violación de todas las leyes sociales en cuanto a los trabajadores agrícolas que también se emplean, ha hecho interesantes declaraciones a Alerta, con carácter exclusivo, el doctor Fidel Castro, ex líder universitario».

Antes de la muerte Katiuska Blanco Castiñeira / 19 fidel castro ruz, guerrillero del tiempo de Chibás, se le vislumbraba como una amenaza o un peligro real en la política cubana? ¿Alguien podía adelantar lo que su­ cedió después? Tengo la impresión de que permanecía al ace­ cho, como en la sombra, ¿estoy en lo cierto? Fidel Castro. —Batista se sentía acomplejado con Chibás y le te­ mía, porque el líder del Partido Ortodoxo era un flagelo que constantemente lo atacaba y le recordaba los crímenes, asesi­ natos, robos y abusos.

En tal período, Pardo Llada, Agramonte y los otros líderes del partido sabían que yo tenía conmovido al país, pero ellos estaban pensando en las elecciones a la presidencia. Pardo Lla­ da no sé a qué aspiraba. Ellos estaban en lo suyo, no creo que se percataran totalmente del volcán que se gestaba a sus pies. Como yo había alcanzado esos niveles de prestigio, ese crédi­ to, esa autoridad... —a lo mejor pensaban que me iban a matar cualquier día, que yo terminaba muerto—. Pienso que no me mataron porque mi asesinato habría hecho demasiado ruido.
