  11. 11. Conclusion In overall wecan take Radio Nepal as only medium of communication with ruralilletrate peoples. Radio Nepal has been playing this role since its establishment.Radio Nepal is Voice of Voiceless. Radio Nepal takes news, views, and actions of Governmentto ruralpeople and also bring back their opinion and feedbacks on governmentplans and policies.Radio Nepal is only one medium or middleperson between govenmentand citizens. Recommendation Though Radio Nepal is only medium between Governmentand citizens, its reach has not reached to full population.Radio Nepal’s contents are illetrate people friendly which most of the people are unawareabout.People(youth) this days rarely listen to Radio Nepal , as they prefer to hear songs or entertainment based Fms as per their desire. Radio Nepal to be Voice fo Voiceless need to makeits coverage moreclear with high frequency so other local Fmstations dont get mix with Radio Nepal’s frequency, also Radio Nepal need to increase entertainment based programs to increase youth listners and match their desire and get their opinions for development.
