1) father is bound to maintain your grand father if he is unable to maintain him self . 

2) section 125 CrPC provides for an order for maintenance of wives, children and parents. It provides that if  any person with sufficient means neglects or refuses to maintain even his or her parents then the parents can move the court for monthly maintenance orders against such child.

1. If your grandfather is unable to maintain himself, then he can legally claim maintenance fro your father,

2. Contest the case filed by your grandfather, if he has filed one.
