New Delhi: Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday, will meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. She will also deliver the Nehru Memorial Lecture on the occasion of Jawaharlal Nahru’s birth anniversary.



Suu Kyi, chairperson of the National League of Democracy of Myanmar, is on a six-day visit as part of India’s engagement with the multi-party polity in Myanmar. During her stay in India, she will also meet Vice President Hamid Ansari, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.



A Nobel prize winner, Suu Kyi spent her formative years in India when her mother was the country’s ambassador to India and Nepal.



Suu Kyi studied at the Convent of Jesus and Mary School and graduated from Lady Shri Ram College in New Delhi.



She will go to her college to meet the faculty and students.



She will visit the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in Gurgaon, before flying to Bangalore and Andhra Pradesh.



India awarded Suu Kyi the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding in 1992 while she was under house arrest under the military government in Myanmar.



During the Indian prime minister’s visit to Myanmar in May, Suu Kyi had spoken of the need for greater exchanges between the people of the two countries.
