Between 2008 and 2013, when BJP ruled Karnataka, the term
Operation Kamala was coined for luring the opposition MLAs into the
party fold by making them resign. The main reason for this was BJP had
failed to secure 113 seats in the assembly with party falling short by
5 seats to secure a simple majority. In 2018 Assembly Election, the
same trend was repeated with BJP failing to win a simple majority by 8
seats. In the name of keeping the communal BJP away from the power,
JDS which had won just 37 seats joined hands with Congress making a
way for another coalition government. As expected finally, the
Congress-JD(S) coalition government which was unstable since its
inception has lost trust vote and collapsed after ruling Karnataka for
14 months.  Confidence motion moved by the Chief Minister HD
Kumaraswamy after 15 MLAs of the ruling coalition tendering
resignation put to vote after six long days of debate and
uncertainties on July 23. He lost the vote of confidence by the margin
of six votes ending his rule.
   With this, a week-long political drama
which made everyone stand on tiptoes came to an end.

Instead of looking at life from the prism of negativity, we should imbibe the habit of thinking positive.
