Normally it will not connect to untrusted wifi networks if you have a open wifi network and you have not manually connected before it will not connect, also the secure networks will require the password and then it will connect each time it find if there is not other available.

I tried both secure and open network, it was failing for both, My mobile wifi is WPA2 secured but not connecting!! is there any way I can check the logs?

You could see the logs with journalctl -f specially after restarting the NetworkManage or enabling and disabling wifi

I'm presuming that you're using NetworkManager to control this. You may want to go to their website because they offer a number of support options, and probably know better than we will what's going on.
