One node in my cluster is using ondemand governor which is specified in the directory:

/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor ..

Scaling_governor allows us to choose the governor of our choice.

But this sub-directory is absent in the other node of the cluster.

How do I change the governor for Pstates in such case ?

Verify in your BIOS that you have something akin to "OS level power management" enabled.

We have to recompile the kernel in this case after choosing acpi Pstates driver in menuconfig
