Given that RPI 2 spec is similar to BPI, just wonder if windows 10 works on RPI 2 will it be working on BPI too?

No. Different SOC, different peripherals etc.

can we install rasppery pi images on banana pi
?

no, you cannot. different SOC, kernel, drivers.

i am trying to run scripta or rashra on in to make it a bitcoin miner controler

do you know if its possible to run cgminer on it

not likely, different kernel, binary blobs, drivers, soc etc

Raspberry Pi 2 is totally different - different processor, etc. They're the same price as a B+ ($35) and most cases and things are compatible - just not OSes.

As for the Banana Pi, some will work but I've found that OSes dependent on the Pi's specific GPU or CPU (usually the GPU causes issues in my experience) will not run. Some, like BerryBoot's Fedora and Raspbian, etc. will run (not Lemaker-changed images as they come straight from BerryBoot's SourceForge when you download them).
