The Maoists had been using FM radio very effectively for propaganda purposes in western Nepal till the army recently began an active search operation for their station bases. Three Maoist FM stations broadcasting \'Republic Radio Nepal' are already closed and many more have been forced to move with their equipment, making regular broadcasts difficult. Sources say the offensive against the Maoists in Bhawang and Korchawang in Rolpa made it especially difficult for the rebels.
