It sounds like the gitflow installation has become corrupted. I would suggest deleting the existing C:\Users\ashishtailor\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\ folder and re-installing Sourcetree.

"and its shows me all options New feature.....etc.."
From this it sounds like git flow init did run at somepoint.
