1) the partnership deed must be mentioning share of the partners of firm 

2) partner cannot claim more than his share of profits of the firm 

3) partner cannot stop the operations of firm 

4) the mode of operations of bank accounts must be specified in the firm instructions to the bank 

5) if the partnership deed mentions that any 2 partners can operate bank account the disgruntled partner cannot stop bank operations

1. Yes, if he files a suit for dissolution of firm and injunction on its operations.
2.Yes. if the court grants injunction on bank operations.
File a caveat in the court having jurisdiction over the dispute.

1. No partner can ask for a share greater than what has been reserved for him in the deed of partnership.

2. He cannot stop the functioning of the company. The bank transactions will also proceed untrammelled according the deed. After the release of No.1 his signature will no longer be required. 

3. The remaining 2 partners are free to run the unit according to the partnership deed.

Dear Querist
he can not get more then his share as per the partnership deed/agreement.

if other two partners want to run the unit then they can without any tension.

try to settle the matter amicably with No.1 and release him to safe side in future.

The conditions agreed in the partnership deed will have an answer to this question. However, he resigning partner cannot claim more than his dues and he cannot stop the company's functions due to this. He may approach court of lw if he feels discriminated due to the demands not met, which can be challenged as per the provisions of law and also on the basis of the partnership deed and the agreed conditions therein.
