sons and daughters of sisters of grand father cannot claim partition now as ideally as their parents ( aunts) should have claimed for partition upon the demise of their father( great grand father). also if your aunts have not asked for partition during their life time, their children cannot claim now.

very recently apex court in Danamma case Supreme court has given the equal rights over the fathers property without any bar over the fathers death or women marriage or any women condition over the property. the women will get absolute right over the fathers property any time if it is unsettled.
