BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Wednesday said the Lok Sabha election was a "historic opportunity" to lay the foundation for a "developed India".

"2014 polls are a historic opportunity to lay foundation of a developed India. I urge you all to 'Vote for India' and make the right choice," Modi wrote on Twitter as the Election Commission announced polling dates.

"Poll bugle has been sounded! Best wishes to EC in conducting polls and congrats to people on commencement of biggest festival of democracy," he tweeted.

Modi welcomed the 10 crore new voters and urged them to check their names on electoral rolls March 9.

"My special welcome to 10 crore new voters! You have an important role to play in strengthening and continuing democratic tradition of India. Thankful to EC for giving all eligible voters one last chance on March 9 to ensure they are registered. This opportunity must be used," he said.

"I call upon the people of India to bless us, give BJP-led NDA a majority and make Mission 272+ a grand reality for the prosperity of India."

Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh also expressed confidence over winning the election.

"Our target is 272 plus, and the support we are getting in public rallies, we are totally assured about our victory," said the BJP president, who is currently on a tour of Chhattisgarh.
