BoundariesEdit

HistoryEdit

The constituency was created for the first general elections in newly independent Bangladesh, held in 1973.

Ahead of the 2008 general election, the Election Commission redrew constituency boundaries to reflect population changes revealed by the 2001 Bangladesh census.[3] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[4]

Ahead of the 2014 general election, the Election Commission reduced the boundaries of the constituency. Previously it had also included one union parishad (Bishka) of Phulpur Upazila, and five union parishads of Mymensingh Sadar Upazila: Borar Char, Char Ishwardia, Char Nilakshmia, Paranganj, and Sirta.[2][5]
