HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from a Dhaka constituency when the former Dhaka District was split into six districts: Manikganj, Munshiganj, Dhaka, Gazipur, Narsingdi, and Narayanganj.

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 included three union parishads of Raipura Upazila: Daukar Char, Marjal, Uttar Bakharnagar.[5][2][6]
