In the 2006 state assembly election, Dhirajlal Hazra of CPI (M) won the Jamuria assembly seat defeating his nearest rival Tapan Chakraborty of Trinamool Congress. Contests in most years were multi cornered but only winners and runners are being mentioned. In 2001 and 1996, Pelab Kabi of CPI (M) defeated Shiudashan Nayar of Trinamool Congress and Santosh Adhikari of Congress respectively. In 1991, 1987, 1982 and 1977, Bikash Chowdhury of CPI (M) defeated Tapas Banerjee of Congress, Biswanath Chakraborty of Congress, Pradip Bhattacharya of ICS and Chandra Sekhar of Congress in the respective years.[5]


The Jamuria seat was won by Amarendra Mondal of Congress in 1972, Durgadas Mondal of CPI (M) in 1971, Amarendra Mondal of Congress in 1969, Tinkori Mondal of Samyukta Socialist Party in 1967, and Amarendra Mondal of Congress in 1962. Amarendra Mondal representing Praja Socialist Party had won the Jamuria seat in 1957. That was the first year of the constituency and was much larger than what it was later, and included most of Barabani (Vidhan Sabha constituency).[6]
