HistoryEdit

The constituency was created in 1984 from the Dhaka-26 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.[4] The 2008 redistricting altered the boundaries of the constituency.[5]

Ahead of the 2014 general election, the Election Commission expanded the boundaries of the constituency to include all of Raipura Upazila. Previously it had excluded three union parishads: Daukar Char, Marjal, and Uttar Bakharnagar.[3][6]
