The 1967 election saw a replay of the fight at Porbandar. Viren Shah of the Swatantra Party defeating the Congress's C R Raja, and being defeated in the next elections by Congress candidate N R Vekaria. Here's more of a coincidence: in 1962 D P Raja had won 59.7 % of the vote in both the seats; in 1967 Shah won 49.2 % of the vote in both places; and in 1971 Vekaria cornered 54 % of the vote in both constituencies.
