As the house is your father's own property, no one have rights over it. During his life time he can do as he wishes. Only after him, all the legal heirs incuding your mother also have equal rights. So your wife cannot claim. But it is better to avoid complications, your father may execute a Gift deed in favour of his choice or a Will. But Will come into operation only after him.

It appears that your father is being harrased taking advantage of his old age. He is the absolute owner of the property and it is his wish to deal with that. Let him make a registered will deed for his property specifying the shares among all of legal share hoders.

Your query states the following fact:
The house was constructed by my father with his little savings and out of the retirement funds, which is why it is dear to all of us. For nature of our jobs, me and my brothers are staying away from the home town.
If this is true, no one can claim any rights on his self acquired property, and he can deal with the property as he likes, as he is absolute owner.
Contact a local advocate and let him convince your parents.

You, your mother and your siblings are class I heirs of your father. A daughter-in-law has no right whatsoever in the property of her father-in-law. Your son, along with other grandchildren of your father, if any, are class II heirs of your father. Class II heirs acquire rights only if the respective class I heir pre-deceases the testator. During the life-time of your father, the heirs cannot make a claim, whether the property was self-acquired or otherwise. Your father can write will bequeathing his property in favour of your mother. But after the death of your father, your mother may be too weak to resist intimidation.
