Sorry for above comment

Finally, I got it !!

It was the issue with the firewall

these commands solved my issue.

sudo ufw default deny incoming
sudo ufw default allow outgoing
sudo ufw allow ssh
sudo ufw allow 22

For console access have you tried “Reset Root Password” (under the “Launch Console” button)? Will email you password to access console as root. May take a few minutes to get the email.

I am also facing the same issue. I tried resetting password also but no use. On putty not even allowed putting username then what is the use with reset password? Other droplets are working fine though.
