Badarka holds a lot of significance when we talk about Chandrshekhar Azad as this is the native village of the freedom fighter’s father. Azad, who was born on 23 July 1906, was a prominent revolutionary in the freedom struggle. On February 27, 1931, in an encounter in Prayagraj, he killed three policemen of the British empire and shot himself when the last bullet was left with him.
