No, this is considered retaliatory eviction, and it is usually illegal. You have the right to "quiet enjoyment" of your tenancy, and your complaints were valid attempts to exercise this right.

If you are being evicted on account of this, speak with a landlord-tenant attorney about the possibility of damages.
