The BNP claims to be in possession of evidence that indicates spouses of ruling party members are acquiring property outside the country.
Senior leader Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said on Monday that it points to massive corruption under the ruling Awami League.
He was addressing the raising day programme of Jatiya Party (Kazi Zafar) at the Diploma Engineer's Institute in Dhaka's Kakrail.
JP (Zafar) is part of the BNP-led 20-Party alliance.
The BNP secretary general claimed the number of Swiss bank accounts maintained by Bangladeshis was rising and that wives of ruling party functionaries were acquiring real estate overseas.
He said that names of prominent people from Bangladesh have surfaced in the infamous Panama Papers.
Mirza Fakhrul also blamed the local MP Abdul Kalam Azad and Awami League leaders for the fire mishap at Gaibandha's Gobindaganj area.
"In order to grab land belonging to the Hindu community in Brahmanbarhia, everything was burnt down," he said.
He also criticised the eviction at Dhaka's Mohammadpur.
Mirza Fakhrul also accused the ruling party of using terror to crush the opposition parties.
He also lashed out at HM Ershad and said he had colluded with 'fascist elements' in 2014 to grab power.
