Jolly, was protesting outside Shoma Chaudhury's house and smeared black paint at the entrance and the name plate.
The BJP immediately distanced itself from the entire episode condemning the entire incident. Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley condemned the incident. Jaitley said that this was an individual's action and not that of the party's. BJP also said that Jolly had mentioned to them about the protests but they had refused to go ahead with it.

Jolly, who defended himself said that he was ashamed with Shoma's actions. "My head hangs in shame. She (Shoma) did not stand up in support for her woman colleague and for the past one week she has been trying to suppress the complaint and the facts in the case," he said.
"It was least expected from her to report the matter to police immediately. She should have also asked Tejpal to submit himself to the law of the land," he said.
Jolly wrote accused on Shoma's residence name plate and smeared black paint all over the entrance in protest.
Twitter was flooded with messages regarding Jolly's actions, some even mocking at it.
Shoma Chaudhury said that the entire episode was distressing and that she had complained to the NCW.

Vijay Jolly took Mr. Mukherjee's 'dented and painted' retort too seriously. Note even Mukherjee had only gone after the women.
