HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1978 a Mymensingh constituency when the former Mymensingh District was split into two districts: Jamalpur and Mymensingh.[3]

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[4] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[5]

Ahead of the 2018 general election, the Election Commission expanded the boundaries of the constituency by adding two union parishads of Jamalpur Sadar Upazila: Meshta and Titpalla.[2][6][7]
