The BNP leader said, massive arrest continues every day against the BNP men across the country.
He said, a total of 1,972 opposition activists were arrested since submitting nomination papers.
"We learned that a meeting was held in Law Ministry with the district judges. The district judges were also directed not to grant bail to the opposition activists," he said.
He further said there is no level-playing field for all political parties before the election.
"We reiterate that we have joined the polls as a part of our movement. We also want release of Khaleda Zia," he said.
