Part of the Bedok area was reclaimed in 1966. It became a constituency in 1976 under the charge of Haji Sha'ari Tadin who formed the Citizens' Consultative Committee. In 1980, Professor S. Jayakumar took over as MP for Bedok. The name Bedok is actually one of the oldest names dating from the time of Sir Stamford Raffles. The Malay word Bedok (pronounced as bedoh with the ‘h’ pronounced as ‘k’) refers to a large drum used in the olden days to call the Muslim community to the mosques for prayers, or to sound an alarm, before the days of modern technology.
