Mumbai North Central, an urban seat, witnessed a high-profile contest in 2014 Lok Sabha elections between Priya Dutt of the Congress and Poonam Mahajan of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Mahajan defeated the 2009 election winner with a margin of 1.8 lakh votes.

In fact, the voters of this constituency have never picked the same party since 1980.

In the past, the constituency has been represented by Pramila Dandavate of the Janata Party, Ramdas Athwale of the RPI and Manohar Joshi of the Shiv Sena.
